Community Turns Out to Reopen Hairston Crossing Library. (Stone Mountain-Redan Patch, 4/16/2011)
Excerpt: “We are very excited to have this opening taking place today,” said Alison Weissinger, Acting Director of the DeKalb County Public Library, moments before the start of the dedication ceremony that marked the reopening of the Hairston Crossing Library on April 16.
“ I believe that the DeKalb County library system is one of the best in the nation,” Weissinger said in her remarks.
The newly refurbished library at 4911 Redan Road in Stone Mountain, which expanded from 4,000 to 18,000 square feet, sports a 53,000 volume collection and three meeting rooms including one which can hold up to 100 members of the public and a six-seat study/tutor room as well as a 12-seat conference room.
There are now 38 computers available for public use and 12 separate computers in a computer lab. The number of parking spaces has also increased to 90 from 20.
