SALISBURY, Md.- A new chapter could be coming to the Wicomico Public Library in downtown Salisbury.

The library wants to update its building by remodeling the front of it.

It's a proposed renovation that already has people excited. 

"I just think it looks amazing but I think it will be a great addition to the downtown," says Maureen Williams. 

The proposed renovations include glass windows and more space in the lobby. 

The library wants to use the extra space as a sitting area, and a place where people can host events. 

"It would create a social environment around them the library, we want the library to be a place where they can meet," says Andrea Bertsler, executive director of the Wicomico Library.

Library officials say they do not have a price tag just yet, but they're leaving it to their foundation to raise funds for this project. 

The library hopes the project will be completed by fall 2020.
