Refresh Information


Maggie Nightingale Library will undergo remodeling beginning in August 2021 as part of a Capital Improvement Program (CIP). The building will close because it will be a construction site, which is not a safe environment for the public or staff.

What work will be done?

The project will include new flooring, some new shelving, a new service desk, painting, and installation of the Open Plus automated system. Work will also be performed to bring the building into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). This work was chosen based on use of the branch and input from stakeholders, including customers and staff.

How long will the library be closed?

The building will close to the public at the end of the day on Monday, August 2, 2021, and the library will remain closed for 6 to 8 months.

What about my holds?

You can place holds, but after July 23, 2021, you must choose a different location for pick up. If you have not picked up your holds from Maggie Nightingale Library by August 2, 2021 at 6 p.m., staff will call you to ask where you want the hold sent.

Where can I go for library services while Maggie Nightingale Library is closed?
