Public library opens Wednesday

-A A +A

The wait is over.

The new Taylor County Public Library will open its doors to the public for the first time on Wednesday at 9 a.m.

The library closed Jan. 19 to begin the move to its new location on East Broadway. The new library is located in the former Gabehart Lumber building.

Renovation of the building cost about $1 million and the library hasn’t had to borrow any money to pay the cost.

The new library features a coffee bar, meeting room, children’s and young adult areas, magazines, genealogy room and more.

Library hours are Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Watch for photos and a story about the opening in next Monday’s issue.
