Library wall is coming down

The brick wall surrounding the historic Carnegie portion of the Knox County Public Library at 502 N. Seventh St. will soon come tumbling down after members of the library board awarded a contract for its demolition Tuesday to local company Wolfe Construction.

The Knox County Public Library Board of Trustees on Tuesday gave unanimous approval for two projects that will better ensure the library remains inviting and accessible to all patrons.

The brick wall around the historic Carnegie portion of the library will soon come tumbling down following the board’s approval of a bid submitted by Wolfe Construction, 2724 Washington Ave., for an exterior wall renovation.
