Atlanta – The Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System will break ground on the new Wolf Creek Library next Thursday, May 30 at 11:00 a.m.
The new 25,000-square-foot library for Wolf Creek is part of Phase I of the Library Building Program that is currently underway. The library will be located at 3100 Enon Road in Southwest Atlanta.
Leo A. Daly Co. has contracted with Fulton County to provide design and engineering services for the new library. Hogan Construction Group, LLC is contracted to provide construction management services on this project, and Heery/Russell is the program management team.
The grand opening of the Wolf Creek Library is expected in the 3rd quarter of 2014.
In November 2008, Fulton County voters overwhelmingly passed the Library Bond Referendum. The plan will greatly enhance all of the county’s libraries, and includes:
8 New Branch Libraries: Alpharetta, East Roswell, Milton, Northwest Atlanta, Palmetto, Southeast Atlanta, Stewart-Lakewood and Wolf Creek.
Two expansion projects: Auburn Avenue Research Library on African American Culture and History and the South Fulton Library.
Green building design and sustainability are priorities for these library building projects, and the Library System expects to achieve LEED Silver on all of the Phase I projects. Each library will reflect the culture and interests of its community.
Those attending the event are asked to park at the Wolf Creek Public Safety Training Center, at 3025 Merk Road, College Park, and a shuttle will take attendees from this location to the ceremony; there is no parking available at the site.
