The Atlanta Fulton County Library System will close Adams Park Library to the public beginning next week, according to a press release. It will undergo renovations that are part of the ongoing Library Renovation Project. Patrons are reminded to transfer hold items, locate a nearby library to return library materials and search for library programs at http://afpls.org/locations or use the Library System’s library locator tool to search for an alternate library.
The Adams Park Library will close to the public at 6 p.m. Monday, April 15.
The Design/Build team of CPL Team Architecture, Engineering, Planning and CT Darnell Construction has contracted with Fulton County to provide design, engineering and construction management services for the Group 3 renovation projects, which includes Adams Park Library, and Heery/Russell is the program management team.
“The closing of the Adams Park Library is part of a two-year effort to redesign and modernize 23 of the county’s 34 libraries. Upgrades will include items like new HVAC systems, roofing, upgraded technology, improved layouts, new shelving, study rooms, ADA accessible restrooms, and more,” said Gabriel Morley, director of the Fulton County Library System. “While we know the closing of this library will bring some inconvenience, the result will be well worth it. We look forward to completing the renovations as quickly as possible and re-opening a beautifully renovated library that can serve the community more efficiently.”
Renovations are expected to take from three to six months. During construction library service will be available at the following nearby locations:
- Metropolitan Library, 1332 Metropolitan Parkway, Atlanta
- Southeast Library, 1463 Pryor Road, Atlanta
- Wolf Creek Library, 3100 Enon Road, Atlanta
- South Fulton Library, 4055 Flat Shoals Road, Union City
