Our community recently celebrated a groundbreaking ceremony for the new North Cobb Regional Library, which will be located at 3535 Old Highway 41, Acworth. This new 25,000-square-foot library will be built at the intersection of Old 41 Highway and Blue Springs Road across from North Cobb High School. It will include creative space, a community room, study rooms, dedicated children and teen areas, an outdoor plaza for children, state-of-the-art technology and a drive-up book return. The facility will be a consolidation of the Acworth and Kennesaw public libraries constructed in the mid-1960s. This $8.6 million project is funded by voter-approved 2016 Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax funds.
