RICHLAND COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

Two library locations in Richland County are closing for renovations on July 1 at 6 p.m.

Officials say the Northeast (7490 Parklane Road) and Wheatley (931 Woodrow Street) locations will be closed for the next 12-18 months.

The Northeast location will nearly $5 million while the Wheatley location will cost more than $1 million. Both projects were approved after Richland County residents voted to pass a $59 million bond referendum back in 2013.

The Northeast location will have a teaching kitchen, a large meeting room, and exterior improvements. As for the Wheatley location, it will have a designated children’s area, a nursing mother’s room, and patio space.

Because of these closings, customers who have holds at either branch are asked to choose an alternate pickup location.
