Irondequoit residents are getting a new library.

Residents voted in favor of the $13-million project to build a new central library. It will combine the two current branches into one location near the Irondequoit Town Hall.

The Irondequoit Public Library Board of Trustees issued a statement Saturday night saying the proposal had passed, with 64-percent of voters saying yes and 36-percent saying no to the proposal.

Voters had originally approved the plan back in April, but a lawsuit was filed against the plan. A re-vote was held Saturday evening.
