Scott County Public Library | Georgetown, Kentucky
Originally constructed in 1929, the Scott County Public Library has been a long-standing treasure for the Georgetown community. But because of the building’s age and the site’s land-locked restrictions, the people of Georgetown recognized the time had come to find a more expansive location and invest in a new building capable of meeting the technological needs of a modern library.
The new Scott County Public Library is a dynamic facility designed to enhance the endearing characteristics of the previous space. Located on the southern edge of Georgetown, in a newly developed commercial and residential zone, the single-story building contains over 27,000 square feet of floor space—over three times the area of the previous facility—and is designed with a highly flexible interior to accommodate expected growth and change.
Today, the new building houses an expanded collection of literature, materials, and programs to reach a population of over 54,000 people, more than three times the amount when the original library was built. This new space is fresh, open, and inviting and it welcomes people from all over Scott County to gather, learn, and grow together.
