The South Fulton Library will close temporarily as of Monday, November 17 for renovation and expansion.
This renovation and expansion of the library, located at 4055 Flat Shoals Road,Union City, is part of Phase I of the Library Building Program that is currently underway.
McAfee3Architects, in association with Craig Gaulden Davis, has contracted with Fulton County to provide design and engineering services for the new library. Evergreen Construction Group will provide construction management services on the project, and Heery/Russell is the program management team.
When the renovation and expansion are complete, the library will go from its current 15,000-square-feet to 25,000-square feet and will include additional meeting space, state-of-the-art presentation equipment, enhanced space for children’s services and a separate area for teens.
Construction for the expansion and renovation will take approximately 12 months, and the reopening of the library is expected in the first quarter of 2016. During construction library service will be available at the following nearby locations:
- College Park Branch: 3647 Main Street, College Park 30337
- Fairburn Branch: 60 Valley View Drive, Fairburn 30213
- Southwest Branch: 3665 Cascade Road SW, Atlanta 30331
- Wolf Creek Branch: 3100 Enon Road, Atlanta 30331
Green building design and sustainability are priorities for all Phase I library projects, and the Library System expects to achieve LEED Silver on each project. Each library will reflect the culture and interests of its community.
In November 2008, Fulton County voters overwhelmingly passed the Library Bond Referendum. The plan will greatly enhance all of the county’s libraries, and Phase I includes 8 new branch libraries, Alpharetta, East Roswell, Milton, Northwest Atlanta, Palmetto, Southeast Atlanta, Metropolitan, and Wolf Creek and 2 expanded libraries, the Auburn Avenue Research Library and the South Fulton Branch.
