$1 million project to upgrade library complete

Graves County is making it a little easier for people to find a quiet place to read and study.

A ribbon cutting was held on Tuesday for the grand re-opening of the Graves County Library.

Updates include new study rooms, a new meeting room, and enclosed areas for children to reduce noise.

"It's a community. People gather here still to learn but also for programming. We have lots of programming here for all ages, and you can't expect little children all the time to be quiet," said Library Director, Deana Gscwhind.

This is the first update to the library in more than 20 years.
