Sibley Library closes April 4 to May 7 for renovation

The Sibley Library, 1539 South Cobb Drive in Marietta will close for about a month, from April 4 to May 7, while undergoing a major renovation.

Regular hours (10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday - Wednesday, 1 to 6 p.m. Saturdays, closed Thursday, Friday and Sundays)

will resume May 9.

The project is funded by a Georgia Public Library Services’ Major Renovation and Repair Grant and the 2011 Cobb County Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax.

The cost projection is less than $200,000, with the Cobb County Property Management Department conducting the renovation.

The library space will be reconfigured to improve the delivery of technology training, adult education and workforce development resources.

This project includes the installation of new electrical and computer cable systems, interior and exterior lighting, ceiling, carpet, customer service desk, replacement of double doors and an enclosure for a computer and literacy training area.

The two libraries in Marietta closest to Sibley, both open for regular hours during the Sibley renovation, are the Switzer Library at 266 Roswell St. and the Stratton Library at 1100 Powder Springs Road.
