MILWAUKEE -- A new addition is coming to Milwaukee's East Side.

Construction on a new library near Farwell and North Avenues is nearing completion.

It will have state of the art amenities inside and out. The library director said what you find on the shelves is changing as well.

"You'll see fewer physical collections, fewer CD's and DVD's, and more electronic tools like eBooks, dowloadable music, dowloadable magazines as a matter of fact," said Paula Kiely.

Ninety-nine apartments are also being built above the library.  

Construction is set to wrap up before the end of the year.
