New Hickory Grove Library slated to open Feb. 6

For the past year, a 16,000-foot replacement for the current 5,100-foot Hickory Grove branch has been under construction across the street at 5935 Hickory Grove Road, near Food Lion. To prepare for the opening, the old branch will close three weeks before the opening of the new branch.

  • Jan. 16, 2010: Old branch closes so the books and materials can be moved to the new building.
  • Feb. 6, 2010: Grand opening of new Hickory Grove Library.



New page lets you follow along with library building projects

May 19, 2009

A new page entitled Library Building Projects is now available on the library’s web site This page lets you follow along with library construction, including renovations and new construction.

While the economic climate has affected many library building projects, construction continues on a new Hickory Grove branch library, and you can view photos of the continuing progress from this page. This new library received funding for land and construction many years ago, and is desperately needed to meet the needs of growing community surrounding it. The new building will replace the small, strip mall library branch on W.T. Harris Blvd., and is scheduled for completion in 2010.

How does the library make decisions on when and where to build or renovate libraries? Decisions for major capital projects are guided by the Library’s Ten-Year Facilities Master Plan, which is informed by a comprehensive study of trends, community growth and feedback from YOU — our library users. As you can see, the projects on the Building Projects page are in various phases of development from early planning to actual construction. Many of these projects may not be completed for several years, but by planning far into the future, we can create facilities that will meet the needs of future citizens.
