Greenwood Public Library opened its doors for a special event, “Come for the Cake, Stay for the Books,” that also featured tours of the library with recent interior renovations and improvements. The after-hours event took place Oct. 6.
The library staff wanted the community to celebrate the way books bring a community together. Among the new features, especially on the second floor, are 11 private study rooms (more than double the number before renovation), various new meeting rooms, a special room for adult-child, foster care, and therapy.
Also, new study booths and tables add to the comfort of patrons with a computer or a book. The library is at 310 S. Meridian St. between a re-envisioned Old City Park and a multi-million dollar mixed-use development.
