After many months of construction and four weeks of moving, the Anderson Public Library is ready to reopen its doors with the coming of the new year at its newly expanded location on Main Street.
Director of the library, Pam Marks, is pleased to announce that the library will be reopening on January 2nd at 9am. With a newly expanded space, members of the library will be able to use all of their favorite services at the library with more space dedicated to the children’s area, community meeting space, and much more.
To celebrate the reopening of the library, Pam explained that the library is planning on holding a grand opening celebration in February. More details of the celebration will be released shortly but will include a number of great festivities for the community to enjoy.
Along with reopening, the library is also changing and expanding its normal hours of operation. “We have expanded our hours in response to community requests,” Pam said as she explained that the library will open for an extra hour on Sundays. The new hours are 9am-8pm on Monday through Thursday, 9am-6pm on Friday and Saturday, and 1pm-6pm on Sunday.
As reopening nears, the library would like to thank two community members that have helped at the temporary location. Rod Cunningham, owner of Custom Tool and Manufacturing, allowed library members to use his parking lot while at the temporary location.
“Rod was so generous to allow us to use his parking lot. We wanted to let him know how much we appreciate that while we were there,” Pam said. She also wanted to thank Paul Blackhurst, owner of the temporary location building, for his help during the process.
