Curious about the progress of the new Central Library?

Have you been itching to get a sneak peak into the new Central Library? Mark your calendar because Tuesday, September 20 is your big chance to do just that! The American Heart Association and Frank L. Blum Construction will be hosting the American Heart Association’s campaign kick off at the building site of the new Central Library, now called Central on Fifth, at 660 W. Fifth Street in downtown Winston-Salem.

This is a free public event and open to everyone who is interested in a first look at Forsyth County’s flagship library before it reclaims its spot in the information and cultural life of our community when it reopens in 2017. Library staff and architects will be on hand to answer questions about Central on Fifth’s exciting new building features, library services, and materials collections.There will be information about the AHA campaign and the 2016 Winston-Salem Heart & Stroke Walk taking place on October 29 at the Wake Forest Innovation Quarter - Bailey Park. We will have kids’ activities including Music & Movement, a Building Storytime, LEGO challenges, photo ops with some earthmoving equipment, and more! If you choose to make a $20.00 or more donation to the American Heart Association, you get a bright red, official Frank L. Blum hard hat to commemorate the event!

This is only the third time AHA has held their kick off at a construction site and the first time that Frank L. Blum has opened a live construction site to the public. You won’t want to miss this historic event!
