Authored on

Central Library will be temporarily closed on Friday, December 8th due to the ongoing construction projects. Central Library is expected to reopen on Saturday, December 9th. The Library on the Go van will make a special stop on the 1100 block of State Street (around the corner from the library) on December 8th from 1:30-5 pm with a mix of materials for all ages, as well as Wi-Fi access.

Holds pickup for items at Central Library will not be accessible during this time, but pickup by dates will be extended. Due dates will also be extended but book drops will not be open.

SBPL Works! appointments, literacy tutoring space, computer use, printing, and reference assistance will be unavailable at Central Library during the closure. Staff encourage patrons to use the Eastside Library or submit questions via chat or our online ticket system. Our Digital Library is open 24/7.

SBPL would like to thank the community for their patience as we navigate construction at Central Library. We look forward to the new Michael Towbes Plaza and accessible elevator.
