A proposal to turn the East Hall library, closed as a result of budget cuts in July 2011, into a health clinic for county employees is being met with a critical eye from some residents and officials who would like to see the branch revamped and reopened instead. “We don’t need any more clinics,” said Brenda Williamson, who, along with her husband, Johnny, donated a portion of land at 2464 Oconee Circle to the county so that the library building could be built. “Why would you want to take our library and turn it into a clinic when it’s there for the children and adults to use?”
