Punta Gorda Charlotte Library Ribbon Cutting The Charlotte County Board of County Commissioners has scheduled a ceremonial ribbon-cutting at 4 p.m., Sept. 5 to commemorate the completion of the Punta Gorda Charlotte Library, 401 Shreve St. in Punta Gorda. The $7.8 million library was funded by proceeds from the 1% local option sales tax approved by voters in November 2014. The City of Punta Gorda and the Friends of the Punta Gorda Library contributed about $500,000 toward the project. Construction on the 20,100-square-foot facility began April 9 on land donated to the county by the city. The library was built by Willis A. Smith Construction. Engineering and design was performed by Harvard Jolly Architecture. The library includes meeting rooms, a Friends of the Library area, youth and program space, a computer area with instructional classes and approximately 1,000 square feet for archive functions. The library is open 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday and 10 a.m.-7 p.m., Wednesday.
