Wake County Public Libraries celebrated the grand opening of the new Fuquay-Varina Community Library with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Sept. 22. The 9,800-square-foot library, located at 271 Bramblehill Dr., offers a collection of 45,000 books, 16 public computers and WiFi service. The library will add an adult services librarian to the team and increase the number of school-age programs.
Construction on the new library began in April 2018 and was a part of a $45 million bond approved by voters in 2007 to build, expand, renovate or repair libraries. Project costs totaled approximately $4.5 million.
“The Fuquay-Varina Community Library has always been an important part of this community,” says Ann Burlingame, deputy director of Wake County Public Libraries. “This brand-new building will serve library patrons for years to come, and we look forward to making new memories here with all of our visitors.”
