In addition, here is a press release from Gwinnett County Public Library:
After much anticipation, the Five Forks branch of the Gwinnett County Public Library will reopen to the public on October 15th. The branch, which began an upgrade project earlier in the year, will have reconfigured spaces, new interior finishes and fixtures, an energy efficient HVAC system, and several new high-tech features. A ribbon cutting ceremony will take place on Tuesday, October 16th, with grand reopening celebration for the public to follow on Saturday, December 1st.
As part of the project, a new Tech Studio space will give library customers access to professional quality software for image and video editing, design, and media creation. Software such as Final Cut Pro, Adobe Illustrator, and Photoshop will be available to the public.
An automated sorter will also be installed to cost effectively keep up with circulation demands. It will process books 24/7, as they are returned by customers.
In the following weeks, an exterior vending machine will bring 24/7 access to customers who need materials when the library is closed. The machines will be about the size of a standard vending machine, holding up to 500 items. A variety of materials will be available for check-out with a valid library card.
