Changes Coming to St. Andrews Branch of Richland Library

Mez Joseph

For the first time in more than two decades, big changes are coming to the St. Andrews Branch of the Richland County Library. The building will be renovated and reconfigured along with a 2,000-square-foot addition.

You can expect to see a larger meeting room, enhanced garden and outdoor area, a teen engagement space, and a dedicated career area. This all comes thanks to a bond referendum that was approved in 2013. The renovations are being made based on recommendations from the community.

"We have not had any improvement since we were moved here in 1992. So we really want to remain relevant in our community and we feel that with our new renovations, we're going to be able to have more opportunities, more space to bring people together and to meet the needs that they have now and the future,” says Richland Librarian Amanda Chapman.

You can see more of the construction plans Monday from 5 to 7 p.m. at the St. Andrews library location at 2916 Broad River Road, Columbia. A date for construction hasn't been set yet but it's expected to last about a year. Once construction begins, services at the St. Andrews location will move to a temporary cottage, so the location is not closing.
