Library System Prepares to Close Northeast/Spruill Oaks and Ocee Libraries for Renovation

As the Northeast/Spruill Oaks Library, located at 9560 Spruill Road, Johns Creek 30022 and the Ocee Library, located at 5090 Abbotts Bridge Rd., Johns Creek 30005 prepare to close for construction, part of the ongoing Library Renovation Project, patrons are reminded to transfer hold items, locate a nearby library to return library materials and search for library programs at http://afpls.org/locations or use the Library System’s library locator tool to search for an alternate library.

The Northeast/Spruill Oaks Library will close to the public on Monday, June 24, 2019 at 6 p.m. and the Ocee Library will close to the public on Tuesday, June 25, 2019 at 6 p.m. in order to begin extensive renovation work, as part of the Library’s Capital Improvement Program, Phase II project.

The Design/Build team of Evergreen Construction and McAfee3 Architects has contracted with Fulton County to provide design, engineering and construction management services for the Northeast/Spruill Oaks Library and Ocee Library projects and Heery/Russell is the program management team.

“The closing of the Northeast/Spruill Oaks and Ocee Libraries are part of a two year effort to redesign and modernize 23 of the County’s 34 libraries. Upgrades will include items like new HVAC systems, roofing, upgraded technology, improved layouts, new shelving, study rooms, ADA accessible restrooms, and more,” said Dr. Gabriel Morley, Director of the Fulton County Library System. “While we know the closing of this library will bring some inconvenience, the result will be well worth it. We look forward to completing the renovations as quickly as possible and re-opening beautiful renovated libraries that can serve the community more efficiently.”

New construction is expected to take approximately 6-9 months. During construction library service will be available at the following nearby locations:

• East Roswell Library, 2301 Holcomb Bridge Road, Roswell 30076
• Alpharetta Library, 10 Park Plaza, Alpharetta 30009
• Milton Library, 855 Mayfield Rd., Milton 30009
