New Missoula library readies for limited opening May 3


The Missoula Public Library, a $37 million project, is slated to open on a limited basis on May 3. Phase 1 includes a limited number of visitors, public access hours and services available. 

Karl Olson, the public relations manager for the Foundation for the Missoula Public Library, stands on the staircase in the new building on Wednesday. 

The library’s outdoor patio offers views of the cityscape and surrounding mountains.
