Library Renewal Project News: Library Building Closure Date and More!

There is a LOT going on at the Library as we prepare to begin the Library Renewal Project renovation of our building and to move to our temporary quarters at The Holman. Here are the highlights – please note that all dates are subject to change.

The Library building at 550 Central Ave. will be closed starting Monday, October 28, 2019!

The building closure is scheduled to last until late August or early September of 2020, at which time the Renewal Project construction will be finished and we will return to our renovated building.

Fortunately, library service will not be impacted for very long!

While our building will be unavailable, we will be opening our temporary location on the first floor of The Holman (542 Lighthouse Ave.). We anticipate services will commence on October 29th.  The following services will initially be available:

  • Reading Room with newspapers and magazines
  • Public Access computers
  • Holds pick-up and checkout

The last items to be moved from the Library to the Holman will be the books, audio books and DVDs. There will be a short period of time when these materials will not be available for checkout, and a few days of closure at The Holman as the tens of thousands of items are moved and the materials are arranged onto the shelves.

Library Hours Changing In October!

Continuing preparations for the move will impact the hours of library service. During October the library will be open the following schedule:

  • Mondays: 12:00 PM – 7:00 PM
  • Tuesdays: 10:00 AM – 7:00 PM
  • Wednesdays: 12:00 PM– 7:00 PM
  • Thursdays: 10:00 AM – 7:00 PM
  •  Fridays: 12:00 PM – 5:00 PM
  • Saturdays: 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM

We will continue to provide Library Renewal Project updates, including specifics regarding Grand Opening at The Holman in the next couple of weeks, if not sooner!

Please accept our apologies for these disruptions and many thanks in advance for bearing with us during this transition month!
