South Huntsville Library opening Sept. 28

Huntsville

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – A project that’s been 10 years in the making is finally about to be finished.

The South Huntsville Library, housed in the former Grissom High School campus on Bailey Cove Road, opened to the public on Tuesday, September 28.

The project will be part of the Sandra Moon Community Complex.

The 30,000 square foot library is three times larger than the former Bailey Cove Library, which opened in nearby Weatherly Plaza back in the 1990s.

“To move here from that small space to this lovely, wide open giant space, its just a real boom for the community. It’s also going to be associated with the Sandra Moon complex where there’s lots of meeting space and the Arts Huntsville, as well as the park that’s going to be built, so there are going to be so many things that tie this together as a community center. We’re very excited about that,” Library Executive Director Cindy Hewitt said.

The library, built with South Huntsville’s growing population in mind, will include meeting rooms, private study spaces, state-of-the-art technology, an indoor fireplace, and a coffee shop staffed by HATCH, Huntsville’s new hospitality training workforce.

The library is open seven days a week. The hours are as follows:

Monday-Thursday 9:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m.

Friday-Saturday 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.

Sunday 1:00 p.m.-5 p.m.
