About Goodlettsville Branch Library
The Goodlettsville Community created its own library in 1949 and became part of the Nashville Public Library system in 1964. In 1968, the original library was replaced with a new facility at 106 Old Brick Church Pike.
On July 8, 2011, a new Goodlettsville Branch Library opened to the public. At 16,000 square feet, the state-of-the-art facility is four times the size of the old library. It features a children’s area, teen area, computer space, café style coffee and vending area as well as meeting room space.
An interactive history wall and public art commissioned by Metro Arts with the Percent for Art fund references the history of the community. Continuum by Nashville artist Carrie McGee is a series of acrylic tiles hanging above the circulation desk. Seasons from a Bird's Eye View is a mosaic sculpture in the Library gardens by Nashville artists Paige Easter and Dan Goostree.
The library was built in accordance with LEED Silver Certification guidelines. Environmentally friendly features include pervious pavement, two electric vehicle charging stations, and rainwater collection.
