Location Manager

Heather Green | (803) 787-3462 Cooper is quickly becoming the Forest Acres hub for arts, literacy, and community events, as well as a neighborhood gathering space equipped with the latest technology. Whether you’ll be heading to the quieter reading room, a coding class in the maker space, or a storytime with the grandkids – we can’t wait to grab a coffee and connect with you in our new space. Please feel free to contact me about what’s planned for your library. 

Public Art


Loren Schwerd

Arcadia will be a fabric sculpture inspired by a graphite rubbing taken from the trunk of a large felled tree. The crinoline used will create shadows and patterns and will spark imagination.
