New Alpharetta Library Ground Breaking!

New Alpharetta LibraryThe Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System will break ground on the new Alpharetta Library Tuesday, March 25 at 11:00 a.m. and we'd love to see you there!

The new 25,000-square-foot library for Alpharetta is part of Phase I of the Library Building Program, currently underway. The library will be located in the Alpharetta City Center project in downtown Alpharetta, near the corner of Haynes Bridge Road and Thompson Street.

Cooper Carry, in association with Vines Architecture, is contracted with Fulton County to provide design and engineering services for the new library. Peter R. Brown/Moss Construction, Inc., is contracted to provide construction management services on this project, and Heery/Russell is the program management team.

The grand opening of the Alpharetta Library is expected in the 2nd quarter of 2015.

In November 2008, Fulton County voters overwhelmingly passed the Library Bond Referendum. The plan will greatly enhance all of the county’s libraries, and includes: 
  • 8 New Branch Libraries: Alpharetta, East Roswell, Milton, Northwest Atlanta, Palmetto, Southeast Atlanta, Stewart-Lakewood and Wolf Creek.
  • Two expansion projects: Auburn Avenue Research Library on African American Culture and History and the South Fulton Library.
Green building design and sustainability are priorities for these library building projects, and the Library System expects to achieve LEED Silver on all of the Phase I projects. Each library will reflect the culture and interests of its community.
