For folks wondering what the inside of the Aiken County Public Library will look like after the multimillion-dollar effort to renovate it is completed, there is a new video that offers a virtual tour.
It can be found online at aikenlibraryfriends.org, which is the Friends of the Aiken County Public Library’s website.
“There was a massive need to modernize the library, and that’s what we’re doing,” said Friends of the Library President Bill Reynolds earlier this week. “We are really bringing it up to something that the community can be proud of.”
Friends of the Library teamed up with Aiken County in a public-private partnership to fund the project.
Based on the video, the lighting in the refurbished library will be brighter and the floor plan will be more open.
There also will be many new features designed to make the library more technology-friendly, child-friendly and teenager-friendly.
