Garden City Library Getting a Facelift

Amy Leonard

GARDEN CITY – The Garden City Library, located in the Garden City Municipal Building, is in the final leg of a renovation which started in early January.

Mary Griffin, librarian at the branch for the past eleven years, said, “We have to get the computers hooked back up and then the library board will decide when to reopen.”

With its upgraded ceiling, new flooring and freshly painted walls, the small library appears eager to welcome its patrons with the grand reopening coming in the near future.

The community library originally opened in the 1970s and has been a part of the Cullman County Public Library System since then.

Although the library’s location has changed over the years, the community’s love of reading has continued to grow.

The Summer Reading Program sees between 10-12 participants each year at the Garden City branch. Beginning in early June, Griffin will lead her young readers through a literary adventure which they’re sure to remember.

The library’s remodel was financed by the Garden City’s capital improvement funds.

The library, which serves the community of almost 500 residents, will be open Monday – Thursday from noon-5 p.m. It is located at 501 First Avenue S in Garden City.
