Despite the cold morning, many Anderson County residents and families came out to visit the newly expanded Anderson Public Library on Main Street as it reopened today.
After holding a small ribbon cutting ceremony at 9am, visitors got to enjoy a number of the newly expanded services, including using the computers and enjoying the seating around the fireplace. They also got to explore the new children’s section with all the great playful areas. They even received a free bag.
“It was exciting to see people come through the doors and use the computers,” Bryan Proctor, president of the library’s board of trustees, said while adding that he was pleased to see the community support and turnout to visit the new library.
Director of the library, Pam Marks, also added, “What a great way to start the new year.” She further explained that the staff is now earnestly planning a large grand opening ceremony scheduled for next month. More details of the celebration will be released soon.
