Library Announces Closing Date For Move

The Anderson Public Library officially announced, yesterday, the closing date that will mark the start of their expansion project which will provide more space for books and educational services.  Director of the library, Pam Marks, said that the library will close starting Monday, August 29th and plans to reopen at the temporary location at 1030B Industry Road on September 26th.

According to Pam, the library will operate normally on Sunday, August 28th with hours from 1pm-5pm.  But after 5pm, the move process will start, and patrons will no longer have access to the library.  “The public will not have access to this library on Main Street on the morning of Monday, August 29th, because the staff will be here with the movers,” Pam said.

During the four weeks that the library will be closed, patrons will be able to keep their checked out items that are not due before the move until after they reopen in September.  Most items that are checked out now will not be due until after the move is complete except DVDs which have a 7 day return period and have to be checked out a week before the closing date to receive the extended time.

Pam said that there will be a drop box available at the temporary location for those who would like to give back their items during the move.  She also said that they are going to work with all patrons during the move. “We want it to be the easiest on [patrons] that it can be,” Pam said.
