​East Regional Library Closed for Renovations

Library expected to reopen spring 2018

Book lovers in Knightdale and eastern Wake County will soon be able to enjoy a newly renovated library.

Wake County closed the East Regional Library in Knightdale on Sunday, Nov. 26, for renovations. Book return ended Friday, Dec. 8. The renovated library is expected to reopen in spring 2018, weather permitting.

East Regional Library first opened to the public in 1999. Its renovations will go beyond new carpet, fresh paint and new furnishings. The conference room will be expanded to create an adult programming room. The stage in the youth programming room will be removed, giving the library more flexibility and usable space for youth programs. More electrical outlets will be installed, allowing customers to have more places to plug in laptops and charge their cell phones.

During construction, library users are encouraged to visit any of the other 20 library branches open within the Wake County Public Library System. The closest full-service library to this area is Southeast Regional Library in Garner. The closest large community library is Richard B. Harrison Library in Raleigh.

The expansion project is a part of a $45 million bond approved by voters in 2007 to build, expand, renovate or repair libraries. As part of this bond program, Wake Forest Community Library is currently closed for expansion, and planning for a new Morrisville Community Library is underway.

For more information on the renovation project, visit the project website, or contact Senior Library Manager for Facilities Terri Luke or Regional Library Manager Brandy Hamilton.
