The Dakota County Library in Farmington is getting exterior renovation work to make it look more like the county’s other branches. The current schedule calls for the building to reopen in August.

Farmington library renovation work continues


The Dakota County Library in Farmington is usually a pretty busy place during the summer, and that likely won’t change this year, even though the library building itself is still under construction.

The library has been set up on the second floor of Farmington City Hall since the beginning of the year, while construction crews work on a renovation to the library building across the street.
