DeKalb County Public Library is preparing to build a new library branch—the first since the Scott Candler branch opened in 2012. The public is invited to join county officials, library trustees, administrators and staff for a ground-breaking ceremony for the new Ellenwood library on Monday, Dec. 12, 11 a.m. The ceremony will be held at the site for the new branch, 4331 River Road, Ellenwood.

In the event of rain, the ceremony will be held at the Salem-Panola Library, 5137 Salem Road in Lithonia.

Construction on the facility will begin in January and the new branch is expected to open in late spring of 2018. The Ellenwood library will be 12,000 square feet in size and hold a collection of approximately 20,000 items, including books for all ages, newspapers, magazines and audiovisual materials. It also will include public access computers, a meeting room, two study rooms and a special area for children.
