Close to 70 people came to the dedication of the new addition to the Shelby County Public Library on Aug. 16.
Most of the addition, which has added 5,500 additional square feet to the library space, was opened to the public in late June.
But the library's new program room, the Hudson room, was not opened to the public until the dedication.
The room, which named after the current president of the library's board, Kenneth Hudson, is capable of seating up to 200 people. It will be used for public functions and group meetings.
