The B.L Perry  library on the South side of Tallahassee has gotten a face lift. The ribbon cutting took place on Saturday.

Record books from the 1940’s sit stacked atop bookshelves in the Dougherty County Central Library’s Genealogy Department. The department, along with the rest of the downtown library, is set to receive a $5 million makeover should a sales tax referendum pass in November.

The B.L Perry library on the South side of Tallahassee has gotten a face lift.

People gathered at the Ribbon cutting on Saturday of the library to celebrate the new additions, and the new look.

The library was added square footage, increasing the reading room, youth area, and computer room.

The B.L Perry brand has the highest computer use in the whole county, and is happy to have the new additions.

Commissioner Bill Proctor was ecstatic about the renovations. He said, "I'm excited that this comes as a Christmas gift to the South side the expansion of the BL Perry Library now with 48 monitors to the Internet, it has 3000 additional square feet so its a marvelous facility. It's a gift to the South side. Merry Christmas to all."

Everyone was all smiles at the ribbon cutting, enjoying the new computers, walking through all of the new space, and of course checking out the books.

    @risky.... Proctor acts like he is the only one doing things for the south side....where he does not even live. Let me guess, you are one of those bleeding heart liberals that believe in all the 'its all about how we feel" hype.
