Houston approves more Nola Brantley library renovations

WARNER ROBINS -- Renovations to the Nola Brantley Memorial Library aren’t done just yet.

The library reopened in November after extensive remodeling at a cost of $1.9 million, but now additional work will be done on the roof.

The Houston County commissioners on Tuesday approved two change orders to the original renovation contract to include refurbishing the roof. The new work will not interfere with library operations.

The board approved a change order of $163,750 to replace the roof and another for $4,100 to install canopies over the two doors on the west side of the library.

Barry Holland, director of administration, said after the meeting that the roof work was not included in the original renovation because the county had hoped to get a few more years out of it.

However, recent rains have exposed issues with the roof, and the county didn’t want to risk damage to the renovations.

The work is expected to be completed by April.
