NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC – New Hanover County Public Library has started the planning process for the new Pine Valley Branch that will serve residents in southern New Hanover County. Two upcoming community sessions are being held for the public to give input on the design of the new library branch.
The first session is during the Friends of the Library annual meeting on Thursday, November 10 at 5:30 p.m. Following the business portion of the meeting, a presentation by Vines Architecture and a public input session on the Pine Valley Branch will be held.
The second session is on November 17 from 5-7 p.m. at the Myrtle Grove Branch, located at 5155 S. College Road. This will be an opportunity for community members to meet the architects, see and hear about the library’s preliminary plans, and share thoughts on how the library can better meet their current and future needs.
“The Pine Valley Branch Library design is in the early stages, when input from neighborhoods it will serve can have the most impact,” said Library Director Harry Tuchmayer. “New Hanover County Public Library’s goal is to be at the forefront of library services, and this new facility – with the help of our community – is a big step in that direction.”
Pine Valley Branch Library, to be located at 3802 South College Road, will replace the existing Myrtle Grove Branch Library and allow for the expansion of both the physical collection and the programs and services offered to the surrounding communities.
