The Sue Kellogg Library in Stone Mountain is finally getting a long overdue face-lift.
The library will be closed starting on June 15 to allow for a complete overhaul, including a reconfigured floor plan, new furniture and refurbished restrooms. The branch was last updated in the mid-1980s.
The DeKalb County commission in March approved $1.2 million to finance the renovation. The money comes from a 2005 bond referendum, but the Kellogg branch remained on the back-burner for years.
The library is located at 952 Leon Street in downtown Stone Mountain. During the renovation, patrons are encourage to use the Tucker-Reid H. Cofer, Hairston Crossing and Clarkston branches instead.
