Harris County will be opening a new library three times its original size for the community. The Harris County Board of Commissioners, and the Troup-Harris Regional Library, introduced the 5.1 million dollar library that will be opening mid December- early January of 2018.
The modern library is now being constructed alongside the Harris County Community Center on SR 116 in Hamilton, Georgia.The funding of this new addition to the community is being funded by the state of private donors, and generous donations. The new cutting-edge library will include: a teen area with flat screens, adult area, computer lab, maker space, children’s area, self check-out, conference rooms, a boardroom, meeting space, comfortable seating ,an outside patio area, and other materials. The new state of the art building is being constructed because the population of the Harris County community has outgrown the current facility. Also, there has been new technical advancements since the construction of the original building, Harris County wants to be able to have everything that its community needs all in one building.
I asked Stephanie Green, library manager, what her opinion on the new library is and what she hopes to see in the new building, and how it will impact the community; she stated “ I would love to see more civic groups for meetings, a great source for information and helping generate a new excitement for the library”. By Harris County building this new library there is hope to see more people taking advantage of the latest technology all while in a comfortable environment. Having a beautiful place that more accurately represents the focus that Harris County puts on education.
