The books are back: Pack Memorial Library restocking its shelves

The Pack Memorial Library is putting books back on its shelves in downtown Asheville. But don’t check ‘em out just yet: Although the renovation project is ahead of schedule, the estimated reopen date is for sometime in late fall or early winter. Also check out an Xpress video tour through the renovated library.

    Ho hum. If I want to go to a good library, I’ll drive down to Hooterville and go to that library.

    ^^^ Exactly. The universities have better libraries, books, and resources and I can use the equipment without having to be attacked by the undercover police.

    I can hardly wait for the library to reopen. I work downtown, and it is so convenient to stop in a check out books for me, my daughter, and audio books for my commute. Plus the staff are great, especially in the children’s area.
