Westtown Library is back open

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Westtown Library is back open. The branch reopened Monday afternoon about a year and a half after it was shut down because of budget constraints.

One southwest Albany resident says it was a major inconvenience for him when the library was closed, and he's glad to see it open again.

"It's very accessible, way more convenient," said Rod Thornton.

The branch will only be open part-time. The Westtown Library is open Monday - Wednesday from 2:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.  Saturday from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
