A ribbon cutting ceremony to officially open the new East Hancock Public Library will be held Thursday, March 14 at 4 p.m. The library is located at 4545 Shepherd Square on the campus of Hancock Medical Center.
The new $1.3 million 7,000 square foot library, funded by federal CDBG and HUD grants obtained by the Hancock County Board of Supervisors, is a contemporary glass-and-steel building featuring a reading room with comfortable seating areas and the latest technology. This new state-of-the-art building, designed around a river theme, once open, is expected to become one of the busiest of the library systemís five branches.
The library will house books, books on CD, movies on DVD, public Internet computers, and wireless Internet access inside and outside the building.
The public is invited to attend the ribbon cutting event.
