Now that the ink has dried on the paperwork and the weather is beginning to warm up, officials were on hand with equipment in tow as work gets under way clearing the wooded area located behind and adjacent to the library, which is located at 363 Conyers Road, Loganville. In November, city leaders approved the purchase of two parcels of land for $144,999 which combine to cover 1.549 acres of land.

As the library is amidst a remodeling effort, the additional parking is more than appreciated.

“This will be a great addition for us,” said Rick Vetsch, branch manager for the O’Kelly Memorial Library. “We have been needing more parking for many years. We are especially busy during our summer reading programs and meetings that are held here. At that time, the limited parking is a real problem.”
