WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - New Castle County officials want to build a $21 million library and innovation center in an area with high crime and foreclosure rates.

The News Journal (https://delonline.us/1y9zV4d ) reports the county does not have site control for the project to proceed and doesn’t have all the money approved yet. But County Executive Tom Gordon says plans are moving forward, and he hopes to open the facility in two years.

Two county officials are visiting several libraries in Denmark this month to plan the state-of-the-art facility.

Community Services Manager Sophia Hanson says the county wants the innovation center to be a catalyst for change. It could include tablets, 3D printers and a recording studio for musicians. Hanson says the goal is to give an underserved community access to the most innovative technology.
