A groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled at 3 p.m. March 13 for the 25,000-square-foot regional library being built at the intersection of Old 41 Highway and Blue Springs Road, across from North Cobb High School.
The facility will be a consolidation of the Acworth and Kennesaw public libraries. Both libraries were constructed in the mid-1960s. The estimated cost is $8,640,000, which will be covered by money generated from a Special Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST).
The new library is scheduled to open in 2019.
A closing date for the Acworth and Kennesaw branches had not yet been announced as of press time.
