Construction on the library is expected to take six months. Once it is closed, the library will get upgraded technology, new shelving, better layouts and other improvements, library director Gabriel Morley said.
The county is in the midst of a plan to renovate most of its library branches. In addition to the planned closing of the Ponce de Leon branch, the Sandy Springs library is scheduled to reopen Tuesday. That will be the sixth renovated library to reopen.
The Sandy Springs library, at 395 Mount Vernon Highway in Sandy Springs, will have a grand opening Tuesday at 10 a.m. Tours of the library will be provided.
