An open house celebration of Lewis A. Ray Library is scheduled for 4 pm to 6 pm Monday, Nov. 27, the day the facility will reopen following its renovation project that began in August.

The library has been transformed by the Cobb County Property Management Department to become a Family Services branch that will focus on children’s collections, programming and resources. The space includes new enclosed children’s program and study rooms, reconfigured staff and service desk space, and updated furniture in the facility that opened more than 56 years ago.  

The library is located at 4500 Oakdale Rd., Smyrna 30080, between South Cobb Drive and Atlanta Road, near Interstate 285 and Cumberland Parkway.
