Cape Central Junior High School held a ribbon cutting ceremony for their new library on Thursday.
The new facility has been named the Louis Lorimier Library, a dedication to the man credited with founding Cape Girardeau.
Previously, the Cape Central Junior High library was located in the basement of the main building.
Neil Glass is the Assistant Superintendent at Cape Central. He says the new facility will not only offer more space for students and faculty, but will be a more conducive learning environment.
