Sandy Springs Branch OPEN!

Ocee Friends, Ms Burton (Mgr), and Ms Kennedy (Asss't Mgr) attended the re-opening of the Sandy Spring library yesterday - along with hundreds of patrons happy to have their library back! 

Technology has been upgraded including electrical outlets in tables, LED lighting, automated book return/sorting (with windows so patrons can see the process). The water fountain even accommodates water bottles. The branch is on its way to becoming LEED certified! Small study/meeting rooms have been added and interior decoration has been completely updated; including original artwork. The shelves are shorter, which makes the library lighter and brighter. No need for step stools to reach books above your head! 

If your travels take you to Sandy Springs, please stop by to see what sort of improvements are in store for Ocee! We think you'll like what you see!
