CLEVELAND — For the town of Cleveland and the Rowan Public Library, the grand opening of the system’s West Branch on Tuesday morning was the fulfillment of a long-awaited vision.
“It’s a dream come true,” said Jeff Hall, former director of Rowan Public Library. “Really for me it’s the highlight of my career now that it’s done.”
Hall, who retired as director in 2019 after more than three decades with the library, was a circulation services supervisor in the early 1990s when he started advocating for a new branch in the western part of Rowan County.
