Mayor unveils library makeover at Wright Middle

Posted: Updated:

Nashville Mayor Karl Dean unveiled the $500,000 library makeover at a Metro school on Friday.

Dean and others cut the ribbon on the new library at Wright Middle School.

The technology upgrade is courtesy of the mayor's "Limitless Libraries" program.

The idea - to make each school library just like a branch of the Nashville Public Library, featuring the same access and resources.

"It's hard to believe that renovating a school library can transform a community, but we've proven it," said John R. Ingram, who donated money for the library project.

This is the city's second library renovation. Hillwood High School's library was completed last year.

The city's budget includes money for two more library transformations. Dean said today that Dupont Tyler Middle School in Hermitage and Apollo Middle School in Antioch would be the next schools in line for renovations.
