ALBANY, GA (WALB) -
The main library in downtown Albany is getting a makeover and will relocate for a few months.
The central library on North Jackson Street will close on November 26th and open December 3rd across the street in a temporary facility.
The renovation project could last anywhere between seven to nine months. The hours will stay the same.
"We want to make sure our patrons and our community have the best library available and it will. It will be a state of the art library the community can be very proud of," said Mary Antoine, the interim director.
Not as many books and computers will be available at the temporary facility. But patrons can order a book from the online calendar and pick it up at another location.
Sales tax money will pay for the renovations.
Here is the news release from the Dougherty County Public Library-
The Dougherty County Public Library Central branch in downtown Albany will begin its renovation project starting the week of November 26, 2012 and will be closed to the public.
The central library will be moved to a temporary location. The temporary location will be located on 114 North Jackson St. next to Subway.
The temporary location will be open to the public on December 3, 2012 and will have limited resources and computer terminals.
If you need any of the books that are not available at our temporary location or at our other branches, Northwest and Tallulah Massey, you can request an item on our online catalog to be delivered to the temporary location within 48 hours.
Please be patient with us during this renovation process which may last anywhere from 7 to 9 months. This renovation is needed to provide a state of the art new library that the community can be very proud of.
We appreciate your patients and apologies in advance for any inconveniences this may cause our patrons. Our other two branches Northwest and Tallulah will remain in full operation during the renovation period.
