From Buncombe County Libraries:
The East Asheville Library will be closing this fall to make way for construction of the new and improved East Asheville Library, opening in early 2021. We don’t have exact dates for the closing and reopening of the library, but the East Asheville Friends of the Library will be holding a farewell party for our old building on Saturday, September 28 from 3 to 6pm.
The current East Asheville Library was built in 1966. While the building has been well-loved and well-used over the past 53 years, we’re looking forward to moving into a new facility that will be almost 5 times bigger, with several meeting and study rooms, expanded children and teen areas, an enhanced playground area and much more parking.
Help us say farewell to our beloved old library building in preparation for construction of the new one with food, games, music, and lots of fun! This event is free and everyone is invited.
