The former National Guard armory building is an old structure which is located on Cane Creek Road and will serve as the new building for the library. The Warrior City Council has been working with the library staff and library board for several years on the new library.
Warrior mayor Rena Hudson has voiced strong support for the move. Hudson said that she is an avid reader and wishes for people to have a large selection of books to read.
The delay in moving the library is due to funds being limited. Recently, a fundraising event was held at Global Fitness and Tanning to help out.
When the renovations to the armory building are complete, it will be called the Regional Library at Warrior.
As the staff waits, they keep busy in the meantime. Recently, Evelyn Thornton was one of the many libraries taking part in the summer reading program that aims to keep kids reading.
Headed up by Jackie Holt, the senior center provides hot meals to senior citizens, as well as a place for people to play cards, dominoes, bingo and other games, as well as to just socialize with each other.
The Warrior Ball Park is also put to good use by local teams.
