Opening Summer 2021
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.
For the best views of soon-to-be parking lot, we recommend a slow drive down Midland Trail, past the gas station.
