Atlanta and Fulton County residents will be able to give input on the future of the Central Library located in Downtown at a  June 14 meeting.

The meeting will be from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on the main floor of the library, located at One Margaret Mitchell Square, Atlanta, GA 30303.

The Atlanta-Fulton County Library System is considering either renovating the current Central Library facility or constructing a new library at a different location in Downtown.

This discussion comes as the library system enters the second phase of a $275 million building program, funded by a library bond referendum approved by Fulton County voters in 2008.

Phase I of the Capital Program included the construction of eight new branch libraries and major renovation to two libraries. Seven of the new libraries are now open, with the eighth (Southeast Library) scheduled to open later this summer.

Phase II will include construction or renovation of the Central Library, as well as renovation of other branches throughout the system.
