Library Expansion, Renovation Move Forward


The million-dollar-plus expansion of the Fulton County Library that includes an elevator and stairwell is taking shape after nearly three months of construction work. According to librarian Jamie Brambley, the project, which also includes the renovation of the existing library, is about three weeks behind schedule and will now probably be completed in June or early July. She said Monday that demolition work upstairs has been finished, reinforcement has taken place where needed and the existing building has been skinned. Brambley said the library would probably be closed for a week in January to move the book stacks downstairs so that work on the building's interior can begin. Eagle Construction Co. employees could be seen Tuesday morning working on the library's exterior at the rear of the building.
