DULUTH — The relocated Duluth library branch in Gwinnett County is ready to reopen. Gwinnett County officials will attend a ribbon cutting for the branch Tuesday.

The relocated branch is about twice as large as the original and provides features including two learning labs with areas for sewing, crafting, 3D printing, coding and more; 30 adult computer stations and six kids’ computer stations; and a meeting room that can fit 120 people with retractable walls to add capacity.

Why do libraries matter?: In the era of ebooks, Amazon, and digital reading, you may wonder why news coverage of libraries is still important. Libraries are about more than just books. If you think all you can do at a library is check out books, you haven’t been to one in a while. Your local library is a community center that offers classes and programs to individuals and families.

The new facility was funded by the 2009 and 2014 SPLOST programs.

The branch is at 3180 Main Street in Duluth.
