Residents Invited to Give Input on Central Library During June 14 Meeting

Fulton County residents are invited to a meeting on June 14 to give input on the future of the Fulton County Library System’s Central Library.

The meeting will be from 7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. on the Main floor of the library, located at One Margaret Mitchell Square, Atlanta, GA 30303.

At their May 18 meeting, members of the Fulton County Board discussed options for the library. Those options include either renovating the current Central Library facility or constructing a new library at a different location in the downtown area.

This discussion comes as the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System enters the second phase of a $275 million building program, funded by a library bond referendum approved by Fulton County voters in 2008.

Phase I of the Capital Program included the construction of eight new branch libraries and major renovation to two libraries. Seven of the new libraries are now open, with the eighth (Southeast Library) scheduled to open next month.

Phase II will include construction or renovation of the Central Library, as well as renovation of other branches throughout the system.
