View Renovation Plans in Store for Richland Library Wheatley

Columbia, SC– The design phase is complete at Richland Library Wheatley, which means staff are ready to show off the new, enhanced spaces that are in store for the community. From April 24 – May 5, local residents can stop by the Wheatley location (931 Woodrow Street) during normal business hours and look over details of the upcoming construction project.

During the informal plan reveal, renderings, floor plans and design materials are going to be onsite. Customers can see and feel how their input helped shape the renovation and reconfiguration of the 4,000 square-foot building as well as the extension of space outdoors. They can also interact with staff and ask any questions that they may have about the project.

It is the first time that any improvements have been made to Richland Library Wheatley since the building first opened in the early 1990’s. Customers can expect to see meeting space, study nooks, an increased children’s area, a mother’s nursing lounge and upgraded restrooms. There are also plans to improve traffic flow in the parking lot.

The upgrades are part of a nearly $1.5 million project that is planned for Richland Library Wheatley, made possible by Richland County residents who passed a $59 million bond referendum back in 2013.
