Durham County’s $44.3 million library transformation will add nearly 20,000 sq. ft. to the current 65,000 sq. ft. building if county residents approve the work in a bond referendum on Election Day.

All told, voters are being asked to approve four bond referendums totaling $170 million, which includes $44.3 for the library renovation.

If the project moves forward, the library would close in early 2017.

Building design would extend through March, the News & Observer reports. Construction would extend from June to December 2018. County officials would start moving back into the building in December 2018.

The library would reopen in February 2019.
