Book lovers in Dothan will soon have reason to celebrate. Houston County Libraries will open two new locations in early February.
Though rain delayed construction throughout the year, workers say the new buildings should be open to the public by February 3rd.
The new locations are at Westgate Park and on North Oates Street.
The library is currently being housed inside the Bookmobile, which is parked in the parking lot of the Oates Street location.
Bettye Forbus, Library Director, says Houston County Libraries are taking a more comprehensive approach to the needs and wants of the public. That includes increased online services and programs for cardholders.
