History

The West Cobb Regional Branch opened its doors in May 2002, and serves as a reference and training resource for the other branches in the West Cobb region.  The 20,000 square foot facility has large adult and juvenile book collections, as well as numerous DVD movie & audiobook titles, and houses 24 computers for public internet use.  The branch offers a wide array of programs for all ages.  For adults we have a Book Discussion group that meets monthly and seasonal film festivals.  Youth programs feature offerings for all ages, from Book Discussions for Teens, Tweens, and “Guys Only,” to craft programs for School Age children, to story times for Preschoolers, Toddlers, and even Babies.  West Cobb Regional also has small study rooms that can be reserved on a “same day” basis and used for two hours, and a large “Multipurpose Room” that can be reserved in advance (with some time limits) by non-profit groups.
