New Braunfels Mayor Paul Frater announced Tuesday the city is discussing the possibility of converting the former Plaza Bank building into a new city library,
He arid the Ditdinger Memorial Library Board met last week to consider the possibility of purchasing the building and land to house the library.

Preliminary discussions also have a five-level parking garage being built extending the aire of the building. Two of the parking levels would be underground with the top of the three above ground levels dedicated to library space, extending from the present building Dittlinger Library Director Vickie Hocker arid she needs more to** for books and other services she cannot offer residents, such aa quiet areas and word processors She cautioned, however, the board waa just in a "talking stage."
