Five Forks Library branch reopens to the public


Gwinnett officials celebrated the reopening of the Five Forks library branch on Tuesday, October 16. The branch underwent an exten­sive upgrade project with an energy-efficient heating and cooling system, lighting, and windows, water-efficient plumbing fixtures, and redesign of the building’s square footage and site drainage.

The project also included new spaces designed for using laptops, a study room, children’s space that can accommodate large programs, a teen area, and an updated outside seating area. The remodeled library branch also features a Digital Media Lab that gives library customers access to professional-quality software for image and video editing, design, and media creation.

Construction for the redesign was completed by Classic Plains Construction, LLC. The ar­chitect for this project was Precision Planning, Inc. Funding for the $1.55-million project was provided by SPLOST with $16,500 from the state.
