Coming to Boyd County Summer 2021 will be the Midland Branch.

18,000 sq ft. with lots of cool new features, expanded space, and return of some conveniences.

The Cool Stuff: a drive-up service window to pick up and drop off materials, a 100-seat meeting room available after hours, a two sided indoor/outdoor fireplace, two study rooms, long wall of north-facing windows for natural lighting and a makerspace with audio and video recording equipment.

The Expansions: three times as much space for materials and people, a separate meeting room catering kitchen, and the opportunity to centralize staff space (which is technically a reduction because we are combining two locations into one).

The Conveniences: lots of public restrooms, a dedicated nursing room, and a family restroom in the children’s area, a large parking lot that can accommodate nearly 100 cars with space for a school bus, and a small space dedicated to small business needs.

Midland Branch will be at 6686 US Route 60, directly across from Summit RV.

Materials Return and Book Drop:

While Midland Branch is under construction, materials returns are located at Main and Catlettsburg Branches.

Parking:

For the best views of soon-to-be parking lot, we recommend a slow drive down Midland Trail, past the gas station.
