The Roswell Public Library celebrated its grand re-opening Jan. 3 after closing its doors for over a year for renovations.

The library originally closed Aug. 21, 2018, as part of the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System’s Library Renovation Program. The library system also closed six other locations for renovations, all of which have opened since June.

The 23,716 square foot facility houses around 80,000 books, according to library staff.

“I would like to thank everyone who had something to do with this,” Mayor Lori Henry said at the grand opening. “This has been a long road and I thank you all for working so hard to make it happen. I am just happy to see the library back open.”

The library is open 10 am to 8 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, 10 am to 6 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday. Residents can apply for a library card at
