INDIAN LAND – The groundbreaking for the new Del Webb Library at Indian Land will take place at 3 p.m. Dec. 2.

The new library, to be built as an anchor to the Carolina Commons shopping center, is scheduled for completion in November 2008.

Members of the Lancaster County Council and the Lancaster County Library Board of Trustees will be present at the ceremony. Rudy Carter, Council chairman, David McDonald, principal of Indian Land Elementary/Middle School, and Trish Douglas, lifelong resident of Indian Land, will offer short remarks about this event.

The ceremony, which is expected to last about 20 minutes, will be followed by coffee and cookies.

"It's going to be a great day in Indian Land," said Karen Paulson, Lancaster County Library board chairwoman. "We've waited a long time for this to happen and I'm still having a hard time picturing the building actually going up.

"I'm going to be watching this process closely in the coming months, as I'm sure all of us here in Indian Land will," she said.

The public is invited and guests may park on the site, which is located on U.S. 521, across from Jim Wilson Road.
