Due to ongoing construction that was initiated (but not yet completed) at the Central Library at the same time as the RFID tagging project, the Central Library will remain closed for one more week. The library will reopen on Monday, August 24th.
The Buena Vista and Northwest branches remain open to serve you. Northwest is open Monday through Friday, 12 p.m. to 6 p.m., and Buena Vista's schedule is as follows:
Monday-Thursday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Friday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Due to this unexpected turn of events, we have delayed the due dates for books that were checked out from the Central Library and are supposed to be returned sometime between August 17 and August 23. You are, of course, welcome to return them to the branches (or call the branches to renew your items), but if you would like to keep them an extra week (or don't have transportation to another library), you may return them on August 24th instead of August 17th, without penalty.
Thank you for your patience!
Editor's note: Teens, you can continue to send book reviews for service hours--the blog will go on as usual! Book Club people--you can pick up your books from the BUENA VISTA BRANCH. They are waiting for you!
