The Kasson Public Library is excited about the upcoming construction of its new building to be located in Kasson’s West Park. A rendering of the exterior is at the top of this webpage, while the siteplan is here. The building is a monolithic dome design which will provide energy efficiency and will double as a community safe shelter.
