MAY 16 2022- PICKENS COUNTY LIBRARY CONSTRUCTION PROJECT UPDATE

The scheduled renovation and expansion of the Pickens County Library building in Jasper continues to progress. As of May 16, 2022, the exterior metal framing of the building is complete and the exterior sheathing installation is in progress. Interior metal framing is underway for the expansion, and electrical rough-in is underway. The exterior wall between the existing library space and the library expansion has been removed. Construction is being handled by Hogan Construction Group. Renovation and expansion is projected to be completed by late summer into early fall of this year.

The Pickens County Library building, located at 100 Library Lane, is closed to the public while construction is underway. While the library is closed, a temporary, limited-service library location called “Pickens Grab & Go” is available inside the Mountain Education Charter High School building, located at 339 West Church Street. At Pickens Grab & Go, library patrons are able to check out and return materials, place and pick up library holds, request interlibrary loans, pay fines, and browse a selection of items from the library’s collection. Two express computer stations are available for users to access Wi-Fi, print, and make copies.

Pickens County Library programming, such as storytimes and other events, will continue and take place at off-site locations.
