The Durham County Library is inviting the public to a meeting on Tuesday, January 8, 2008 at 7 p.m. at Southwest Branch Library, 3605 Shannon Rd about expansion plans for the Southwest Branch Library expansion.

The meeting will give the community an opportunity to hear about the expansion and renovation of Southwest Branch Library that will transform the facility into a full-service regional library.

Apparently the branch will be transformed into one of four “regional libraries” along with East Regional (opened June 2006), North Regional (opened January 2007) and South Regional (which is planned to replace the Parkwood Branch). I’d love to go to this meeting, but I’ll be in a First Aid/CPR certification class at the Red Cross that night. I’ll have to see if I can find more information about what happens at the meeting.

More information about the meeting can be found in their pdf flyer.
