Pickens County Library Construction Project Update


The scheduled renovation and expansion of the Pickens County Library building in Jasper continues to progress. As of March 18, 2022, the slab for the expanded area for the library building has been poured and set. Steel has been erected in that area. Construction is being handled by Hogan Construction Group.

The Pickens County Library building, located at 100 Library Lane, is closed to the public while construction is underway. While the library is closed, a temporary, limited-service library location called “Pickens Grab & Go” is available inside the Mountain Education Charter High School building, located at 339 West Church Street. At Pickens Grab & Go, library patrons are able to check out and return materials, place and pick up library holds, request interlibrary loans, pay fines, and browse a selection of items from the library’s collection. Two express computer stations are available for users to access Wi-Fi, print, and make copies.

Pickens County Library programming, such as storytimes and other events, will continue and take place at off-site locations.
