The new Velma Young center is almost finished and will be open to the community in the coming weeks.
Finishing touches are being completed on what is to be the newest learning center for children and adults in Meridian.
The new center was built because the programs and activities at the original Velma Young center outgrew the building.
The new building will house up to 1,800 people.
Programs will run throughout the day for adults and children.
Many sources for job skills and other education opportunities will be available at the center.
