July 8 – Pickens County Library Renovation and Expansion Project Update

As the scheduled renovation and expansion of the Pickens County Library building in Jasper nears its completion, Sequoyah Regional Library System will not be conducting any programming or library events at the Pickens Grab & Go location or at Pickens County Recreation Department for the month of August 2022. Library programming will resume in late September 2022. The Sequoyah Regional Library System locations in Cherokee and Gilmer Counties will continue to offer library programming at their locations during the month of August. The construction project is being handled by Hogan Construction Group. Renovation and expansion is projected to be completed by September 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.
