The Perry renovations are coming

…..And we can’t wait!!!

The Nola Brantley Memorial Library has re-opened! (There will be a blog on this later.) With this wonderful milestone out of the way, the Houston County Library System will now shift its attention to the upcoming renovations to the Perry Public Library. Thanks to efforts of the Perry citizens (and the MVP group in particular) and our local legislatures, the Perry Library has been approved to be renovated and will begin in the spring of 2014. Wahoo!

Having seen the vast improvements the Nola Brantley Memorial Library underwent, we in Perry are getting extremely excited and are waiting impatiently for our day to arrive. From the days the library in Perry was established back in 1939, it has undergone many moves and expansions, from residing in the basement of the Houston County Courthouse…..

to moving into the current  location and expanding in 1981. We cannot wait to begin on this project. In fact, the Perry staff has already begun getting ready for this event by starting to weed the book collection.

But as Perry’s renovation time draws near, to help us manage the wait, we would love to hear our patron’s recollections of the Perry Public Library – no matter what building it resided in or year it was. Feel free to leave a comment on this blog!
