East Asheville Library to close Dec. 28 for construction

Press release from Buncombe County Government:

As Buncombe County prepares for construction of the new and improved East Asheville Library, we’ll be closing the doors on the old building at 902 Tunnel Road on Saturday, Dec. 28. The current target for opening the new East Asheville Library is 2021.

The current East Asheville Library was built in 1966. While the building has been well-loved and well-used over the past 53 years, we’re looking forward to moving into a new facility that will be almost five times bigger, and will include several meeting and study rooms, expanded children and teen areas, an enhanced playground area, and much more parking.

While the East Asheville Library is closed, the public is welcome to use any of the other libraries in the County, along with the digital library. Materials checked out of the East Asheville Library can be returned to any other library. For library hours and other locations, please visit the library website at www.buncombecounty.org/library. If patrons normally pick up holds at the East Asheville branch, please use the online card catalog to change locations or call any branch for help.
