The Anderson Public Library expansion project is moving steadily along, which is slated to bring more educational resources for students and adults across the county. The project, which has been in the planning stages for well over a year, is now coming together as the new section of the library is being built.

The old Main Street location has seen tremendous changes after work started at the end of September of last year.  Hawkins Construction, which won the bid for the project, has poured the new concrete slab, erected the steel beams for the outer shell of the expansion, as well as completely revamped the interior of the old library.  They have also opened part of the exterior walls of the old library to allow access to the new section.

When finished by late summer/early fall of this year, the library will have nearly 9,000 more square feet to house a brand new children’s area and meeting rooms.  There will also be a larger book collection and a newly recreated local history room.  According to Bryan Proctor, president of the library’s board of trustees, the new library is expected to serve the community for well over 20 years.
