Richland Library Marks Start of Construction at Edgewood Location

Richland Library held a groundbreaking ceremony at the new Edgewood location (2101 Oak Street) on Thursday, December 14, 2017 with staff, local officials and members of the community. It marked the start of construction on the nearly 7,500 square-foot structure, located near the Drew Wellness and Cecil Tillis Centers.

We have been exploring ways to bring enhanced services to the Edgewood community for several years. Thanks to tremendous support from local residents and community partners, like the Columbia Housing Authority, the library is thrilled to be converting an old Dollar General building into a new library, marking the 12th location.

The more than $2 million project includes:

  • A meeting space and makerspace to bring in innovative partnerships and resources surrounding career growth
  • Engaging children’s area
  • Expanded outdoor area with a front porch

Construction is expected to last 12 to 18 months. To check out the latest building updates, project renderings and floor plans at any of the locations, visit buildingyourlibrary.com.

Richland Library is a vibrant, contemporary organization that provides resources and information that advance the Midlands. Offering state-of-the-art technology, a variety of literary and cultural programs and 11 bustling facilities located throughout the county, Richland Library offers a truly customizable, modern library experience for residents and visitors alike.
