In 2011, the City of Tallapoosa funded an expansion of our 1991 Public Library, which serves Tallapoosa and the west side of Haralson County. However, due to the cost of the expansion, a needed elevator to provide access to both stories for all was not included in the expansion project. Now, in 2018, the installation of an elevator to allow everyone access to the new second story, and to help us fully develop the space available there, has become a high priority. The City has partnered with the Tallapoosa Friends of the Library organization to marshal funding to see this worthy project through to completion. As of this date, 77% of the necessary funds have been secured, and we are in the home stretch to fully fund this project. The City is requesting funding from the Community Foundation of West Georgia to help the City complete this project.
