Porter Branch Memorial Library Almost Open To Public

The new Newton County Public Library System Porter Branch Memorial Library, designed by Craig Gaulden Davis Architects is scheduled to open to the public in January 2011.  Site work has been substantially completed and includes three bioretention areas, a sand filter, an underground cistern for irrigation, a mulch trail with a wooden foot bridge, bike racks, and native landscaping.  The project is currently under review for LEED Gold Certification from the United States Green Building Council.
