For several years, a sign pointing to the “Future Site of Campbell County Public Library” has been visible from US 27 near Parkside south of Alexandria. The Library has no immediate plans to pursue construction of the new library, and a decision was made to take the sign down this week.
“Having a sign up implies construction might start soon, and that is confusing since there are no plans to move forward with a new library at this time,” said JC Morgan, director of the library. “The sign had become worn and the expense of replacing it, when no immediate plans are in place, did not seem wise,” he said.
The Library is exploring ways to provide some library services in southern Campbell County but no decisions have been made as to location or what services would be offered.
For now, the Library still owns the land at US 27 and Parkside and fundraising for a new library continues in the hope that one day, a new library building with full-service operations will be possible.
Tracy Smith of Alexandria was appointed Aug. 3 to the Board of the Campbell County Public Library by the Campbell County Fiscal Court.
