SARASOTA - Today marks the grand opening of a temporary Gulf Gate Library at Gulf Gate Mall.

While the new facility is being built and completed by next year, the temporary library is being completed.

The county moved the entire library to the mall in only 30 days.

The temporary library has all the bells and whistles of a traditional library. It has free computers and Wi-Fi, meeting rooms, a youth area and the Friends of Gulf Gate Library Bookstore.

Gulf Gate is the busiest library in all of Sarasota County, and while many library systems in the county are downsizing, that simply is not the case in Sarasota.

If you want to check out the library for yourself, it's located near the JC Penny at the mall.
