About the Riverdale Branch Library

The Riverdale Branch Library is 12,000 square feet and has space for 60,000 books.The multipurpose room seats 30 and includes a kitchenette. With parking for 80 vehicles, easy access from Valley Hill Road and the Lamar Hutchenson Pakway, the library affords a convenient location for the Riverdale community.

A very special feature of the library is the walled garden which provides a setting for outdoor reading and children’s activities. Hand painted tables in the children’s area provide a visual delight for the smallest library patron.

The Riverdale branch library of the Clayton County Library System is dedicated in honor of Lee Brent Philmon, past chairman of the Clayton County library Board of trustees. The building was officially dedicated on January 11, 1998.
