As final touches were being put on the new building at 900 Webster Street (same location, just facing east instead of north), books, record albums, furniture, and many other items were being moved in. Shelving books was a major task. With hundreds of thousands of books to move, strong boxes were at a premium, so the local Falstaff Brewery provided hundreds of boxes that were used and reused.
The new library was dedicated 21 August, 1968, with the American Legion Post 47 Band
The new library had a pair of fountain pools that graced the lobby.
