Fulton County moves forward with library renovation plans

When the South Fulton Library reopened last week, Fulton County finished a slew of new libraries and expansions.

Next come the renovations.

The South Fulton Library was one of two that were expanded — its addition increased the amount of space by two thirds, to 25,000 square feet.

The new library has a three-level parking deck, and open cafe, high ceilings, meeting spaces and computer services as well as a glass facade that overlooks a wooded area.

“Go see the South Fulton Library,” Atlanta-Fulton library director Gabriel Morley said Wednesday, saying patrons swarmed the new building when it reopened.

The county also built eight new libraries.

In the coming months, renovations of the remaining 24 libraries will begin. The improvements are paid for with $275 million voters approved in 2008.

All renovations, with the possible exception of Central Library, will be finished by the end of 2019, Morley said.
