Those who have missed visiting the Cumming Library during its renovation project will have to wait just a little longer.

The Forsyth County Public Library system announced the Cumming branch is set to reopen at 10 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 6.

The original reopening was scheduled for Sunday, Dec. 1.

Cumming Library has been closed since Oct. 14 to get new carpet, paint, tile, fixtures and lighting for shelves. The reopening was pushed back due to a delay in the delivery of flooring and trim material, library officials said.

When it reopens, visitors can take a guided behind-the-scenes tour, join in a scavenger hunt to explore the library, search for the hidden geocache, or enjoy a winter story stroll in “The Secret Garden” located behind the library. Children and adults can also make simple holiday crafts to celebrate the library’s reopening.

“We understand that our patrons are eager to get back into the Cumming Library, and we’d like to thank them for visiting our other three branches. Members of our Cumming Library staff have been working at the other branches during the renovation and they’ve told us what a joy it is to see and talk with their regular patrons,” Cumming Library Branch Manager Denise Leeson said in a statement.

Patrons can still use Cumming Library’s outdoor book drop to return books and materials. Materials can also be returned at the Hampton Park, Post Road, and Sharon Forks libraries.
