This branch will be replacing the Eagle Creek Branch, off Richmond road. The Eagle Creek building will close for the last time at 6 p.m., February 26.

Any holds for Eagle Creek customers may be picked up at the Tates Creek branch until the Eastside branch opens.

The Eastside will be Lexington’s largest public library, including a drive-through window to pick up reservations, a children’s area, a teen space, a large meeting room, private study rooms, and a makerspace for hands-on workshops and creating.

“We’re happy that we were able to repurpose an existing building to expand our services to the Hamburg area while still remaining convenient for our current Eagle Creek customer base,” said Ann Hammond, executive director of the Lexington Public Library. “The new Eastside Branch will be a model of a modern library, with plenty of materials, plenty of places to read, learn, create and meet your neighbors.”
