The $3 million renovation on Roanoke City's Main Library is half way done.

Construction started back in October and an outdoor patio connecting the library to Elmwood Park is almost complete.

The library is expanding by 2,000 square feet.

It's the library first major renovation since the 1950's.

"It's a recognition that it's an important community spot and that our facilities are important to the kind of services we can provide folks," Roanoke Libraries Director Sheila Umberger says.

The renovation is expected to be completed by mid-to late fall.
