Embry Hills Library: Atlanta, Georgia

Hogan Construction Group was awarded seven of the nine projects that make up the DeKalb County Library Bond Program. This program consists of seven library projects which include new construction, addition, renovation and replacement facilities.

Originally built in 1990, the Embry Hills Library has historically featured a limited amount of current, popular materials for adult and juvenile readers. The expansion doubled the branch size in order to better meet the needs of the Embry Hills community. At 8,000 square feet, the expanded library has increased its 10,000 volume collection to 23,500 volumes and added a 65-seat meeting room that did not exist in the original facility. Additionally, the newly-renovated library includes a youth services area, audiovisual area, magazine area and 15 computers for public use. Library patrons can peruse the extensive collection during the branch’s extended hours and even check out their own materials at the self-checkout areas up front. The library was closed throughout the 12-month construction process.
