Renovated main library branch to reopen May 10 in downtown Charleston


At long last, an official date has been set for the reopening of the downtown Charleston location of the Kanawha County Public Library.
In a public meeting Monday evening, the Kanawha County Library Board announced plans to host a grand reopening Tuesday, May 10 — nearly two years from the day the first book was put into storage.
In late May 2020, the library temporarily moved from its Capitol Street location to the Charleston Town Center mall.

The May 10 grand opening will include a ribbon cutting ceremony and guest speakers.
