SNEAK PEEK: Inside the all-new Independence County Library; soft opening scheduled for Monday

White River Now recently received a tour of the new Independence County Library, located in the old Barnett Bros. building at 267 E. Main St. in downtown Batesville. The building underwent extensive renovations while staffers spent the past few weeks moving books from its old location at 368 E. Main.

A soft opening is planned for Monday, June 25. The initial hours of operation will be Mondays through Thursdays 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
