Burnett Library building in Clarksville to reopen

South Boston News
SoVaNow.com / July 16, 2014
The Clarksville branch of the Southside Regional Library is reopening for business Wednesday, July 16, at 10 a.m. with expanded space and a new name — the Burnett Library and Learning Center.

Lettering for the new name should arrive in the next week, said Southside Regional library director Leigh Lambert.

The branch, which has been closed for the past several weeks as contractors completed interior work on the renovation and expansion project, received its certificate of occupancy late Tuesday afternoon.

Lambert said the official grand opening is not yet scheduled.

Branch supervisor Eileen Barbieri praised Connie Boyd and the library staff and volunteers for their hard work, moving shelves, shifting books, and re-shelving items in preparation for the re-opening.

She also thanked the “wonderful community who made this expansion a reality.” The result is a beautiful library that can better meet the changing educational and learning interests of children, youth, and adults in the Clarksville area
