Grand Opening

On May 17th, the Berea location of the Madison County Public Library celebrated the official Grand Opening of its new 12,000 square foot building located at 319 Chestnut Street. We were joined by a great many patrons, civic leaders, local authors, and local celebrities.

The library hosted several events throughout the day including a ribbon cutting, raising of the flag courtesy of the local VFW, presentation of a
wall hanging for our youth area, performances by magician Tom Hubbard and musicians Kristi Miller and James Hamilton, and the assembly of some of our best known local authors.

We would like to thank everyone for coming and invite you to view the event photos below:
