Construction continues on the new Geneva Public Library.

Crews are installing terracotta siding and windows on the new Geneva Public Library under construction at 227 S. Seventh St. Library officials are working with their building team to update the construction schedule and hope that construction will be complete by the end of the year. The opening day will be determined at a later date. Keep up with progress at gpldnewbuilding.org.

The Librarian Recommends

Middle School Librarian Kylie Peters recommends “Scythe” by Neal Shusterman. “In a future where humanity has learned how to live forever, Scythes are tasked with choosing who will die. Two teens are wrapped up in a dark conspiracy when they become Scythe apprentices in this twisty sci-fi YA novel that is as thought-provoking as it is thrilling,” she says.

Paula Krapf is public relations and marketing manager for Geneva Public Library. The “Beyond the Bookshelves” column runs the third Thursday of each month. Feedback can be sent to editorial@kcchronicle.com.
