Greenville Library Almost Ready to Reopen
The Greenville Butler County Library is almost ready to reopen its doors after a summer of renovations. The library has been largely untouched since it was built in 1992, and the library staff and board of directors wanted a chance to bring the building into the 21st century.
“Of course books or anything like that is not going away anytime soon. And me being a lover of books I don’t want it to go away!” says Library Director Kevin Pearcey. “But we wanted to make some areas for the children, that they can go into and have their own space and have fun. And also add a place for actually more technology, more computers and such like that.”
The library is currently closed and will remain closed until new carpet can be installed. Then the workers will have to move everything into the building before the grand opening on August 19th.
There will be a special preview of the library at the Library Gala on August 18th. Tickets are $25 and can be bought at the Chamber of Commerce and certain local businesses in downtown Greenville. There will be live entertainment at the gala and Wintzell’s Oyster House will be catering.
