Director of The Newnan Carnegie Library, Amy Mapel said interruptions to the Carnegie’s operations should be minimal and will only have minor changes to the services and programs that the library offers.

The first floor of The Newnan Carnegie Library will be closed due to a movie filming beginning Wednesday, Sept. 26 and is schedule to be re-opened on Tuesday, Oct. 16.

Director of The Newnan Carnegie Library, Amy Mapel said interruptions to the Carnegie’s operations should be minimal and will only have minor changes to the services and programs that the library offers.

“During the period, we expect that there may be a need to modify our schedule to accommodate both the needs of the patrons and the film crews,” Mapel said. “But we plan to keep patrons in the know with updates through our email, web and social communication channels.”

While filming takes place, the following services will be available on the second floor:

·         Wi-Fi access

·         Honor books (with limited selections)

·         All program sessions (no program sessions will be held on Monday, Oct. 8)
