A new home for books has settled in the city of Warner Robins.

The Nola Brantley Memorial Library dedicatedits new facility.

Just down the street from the old location, the newest location adds over 5,000 square footage.

This allows the add-on of a teen room, a larger children's room and 32 new shiny computers.

The 2006 SPLOST paid for the new facility which came in under budget at $1.9 million.

The new location now holds a collection of about 85,000 items which include books, magazines, and even DVDs and audio books.

"They say that libraries should be about books is what a lot of people think, but it's not. It's about information, and information comes in different formats, whether that's books, getting information from the computers, or library programs, and the people in this community now have a better resource for that." said Branch Manager, Mark Bohnstedt.

The library plans on opening the doors to the public Tuesday.
