MILTON, Ga. - The Milton library officially has a home – the old Dinsmore farm at the corner of Charlotte Drive and Mayfield Road in Crabapple.
"Hopefully in the next couple years we will see a library here in Crabapple," said Milton Council member Karen Thurman at a meeting of the Crabapple Community Association June 14 at Milton's Cuisine, on Mayfield.
The 25,000 square foot building is part of 10 new or renovated libraries were approved in a 2008 referendum worth $275 million and work has been moving on a few sites since then. The Roswell library already has preliminary designs drawn up and the new Alpharetta library is part of the new designs of downtown Alpharetta.
The Fulton County Commission voted at their June 6 meeting to approve the $1.1 million to purchase the farm. The motion to approve came from North Fulton Commissioner Liz Hausmann and was unanimously approved.
