The library was built in 1995 when Greer’s population was much, much smaller. The city has grown more than twice that and technology has progressed even more than the local population within that same time.
Renovations include a much larger children’s area, enclosed space for study and reading, teens will have a dedicated space, 2 smaller conference rooms that seat 4, and one large meeting room with space up to 120. Also planned is a drive-up return, family and nursing rooms. All that equals an additional 5,500 square feet. Plus there will be more parking!
In the meantime, the community can go to the Burdette Branch in Taylors at 316 W Main St, which is closest. Of course visiting any branch in the Greenville County Library System is an option too. However, Bookmobile will be in the parking lot of Greer First Baptist Church every other Monday from 1:45 pm to 4:30 pm as of August 13th as a convenience.
