Savannah Branch will reopen Feb. 18
More time is needed to complete the remodeling project of the Savannah Branch, so the grand reopening is being rescheduled to Saturday, Feb. 18.
The branch has been closed since Jan. 7, and the original plan for the project was to reopen on Saturday, Feb. 11. The day-long open house will begin now at 10 a.m. Feb. 18.
The extra time is needed for construction work, carpet cleaning and moving all 60,000 items in the Savannah collection into their new locations, library Director Michelle Mears said.
The remodeling will flip the library’s floor plan, moving youth materials to the north side of the building and the adult materials to the south side. Two new study rooms are being added along with a designated teen area. A new Circulation Desk is being built along with a permanent wall between the Community Room and the library.
During the remodeling, the Bookmobile will be parked at the Savannah Branch from 10 a.m. to noon Tuesdays and 3 to 5 p.m. Thursdays to serve patrons. Patrons can pick up items they have placed holds on at the Bookmobile.
