BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) - The Southwest Brunswick Branch Library held a grand opening ceremony on Monday at the former location of Brunswick Community College's South Brunswick Isles Center.

Located at 9400 Ocean Highway West in Carolina Shores, the new branch has more parking and meeting room space than the former Hickmans Crossroads Branch, according to a Brunswick County news release. It also is located on one floor with fewer stairs.

Brunswick County's Board of Commissioners approved relocating the branch after the building was transferred to the county in early 2018.

The library opened on June 18.
