The main library in downtown Beaumont on Pearl Street reopened March 28 after the City Council meeting dismissed.

Dora Nisby, chairman of the Beaumont Library Commission and director of the Friends of the Library, thanked City Manager Kyle Hayes, Mayor Becky Ames, the City Council and Library Administrator Paul Eddy during the ribbon cutting ceremony.

“It means that Beaumont is on the move. Several years ago, we started on a journey to decide what to do about the main library,” Nisby said.
