After being closed since mid-May, the Jefferson Public Library opened to the public on Friday, June 23, in its new location off Washington Street next to the new police station. The spacious new facility is larger and can offer more services than the previous library could offer, including a self-check-out station and 20 public access computers.
The new space also has a special area for teens/young adults, complete with a laptop bar and study rooms that include white boards. Children can enjoy a huge story room, with room to run around, do crafts and engage in other activities, or watch a movie on an extra-large flat screen monitor. Other features include a conference room and a spacious city meeting room that connects the library to the city police department. The new location will also serve as the headquarters to the Piedmont Regional Library System, which is currently located at the Winder library in Barrow County.
The library will host an open-house event for the public scheduled from 1-6 p.m. on Wednesday, July 23, following a dedication and ribbon-cutting ceremony earlier in the day.
