In case you haven’t already noticed, the Brentwood Library is under construction.
The expansion will increase the size of the library by 13,000 sq. ft.
It will include a new media room, study rooms, conference room, and a larger children’s area, and should be completed by October 2009.
The Brentwood Library is already one of the busiest in Williamson County with 1,000 visitors a day.
A few years ago, Brentwood changed its policies so that Williamson County residents outside the city limits needed to pay an annual fee of $50 to use the library. That helped local residents have more access to the library’s resources.
The Brentwood Library offers books, periodicals, music CDs, DVDs, VHS tapes, audio books, and artwork to check out.
They also have meeting rooms, adult classes, children’s story time, and special events throughout the year — like book sales and breakfast with Santa.
The library has computers available and offers free wireless access (it even works in the outdoor reading area).
I, personally, can’t wait for the expansion to be completed. It seems people can’t figure out the temporary parking spots for book drop. And my daughter can’t wait for the train table to be put back into the children’s library.
The slight inconveniences will be well worth it, though. The children’s story time area was really too small for the weekday crowds, and a bigger media room will allow for more choices.
I can’t wait!
I’ve lived in and around Brentwood, Tennessee for most of my life. I grew up in Franklin, moved away for a short time, and returned to Brentwood with a husband and preschooler in tow. I love gardening, walking, inline skating, scrapbooking, and spending time with my family.
