Grand Opening of the New Clemmons Branch Set for Thursday, June 17
The new Clemmons Branch of the Forsyth County Public Library system will host a grand opening and ribbon cutting on Thursday, June 17 at 10:30 a.m. The former branch, at 3554 Clemmons Rd. closed permanently on Saturday, May 29. Books and other materials are currently being moved to the new location. Clemmons customers can pick up holds at the Lewisville Branch at 6490 Shallowford Rd.
The new branch is located at 6365 James St., which is less than a mile from the current location.
"Our library system has had a presence in Clemmons since 1964," said Library Director Brian Hart. "We're proud of the fact that we've been able to grow with the community and that we're now welcoming a second generation of Clemmons customers to a beautiful new space."
The 20,000-square foot branch has spaces devoted to teens and children. The branch also has a large auditorium and smaller multi-purpose room, a makerspace, three small meeting rooms, a quiet reading room and a sunny courtyard.
