A reminder that tonight (Monday), Seattle Public Library is holding an open house from 5-6 p.m. to explain more about Greenwood Library’s upcoming renovation closure, which begins on Feb. 13. City Librarian Marcellus Turner and other library staff members will be on hand.
The Greenwood Library, 8016 Greenwood Ave. N., will close temporarily for about two months for renovation. The 15,000 square foot library, which was completely rebuilt in 2005, has seen heavy use and needs new carpet and remodeling that will improve public spaces and increase access to technology.
The book drop also will close during renovations. As always, patrons can return library materials to any Seattle Public Library branch. When placing a hold on items, patrons can choose another library location for pickup. If patrons don’t select an alternate branch by Feb. 3, the library will automatically redirect holds to the Broadview Library, 12755 Greenwood Ave. N., for patrons whose zip codes are 98177, 98133 and 98125; and to the Ballard Library, 5614 22nd Ave. NW for all other patrons.
The Green Lake Library, 7364 E. Green Lake Dr. N., is normally closed on Fridays but will be open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. beginning Feb. 24 to accommodate Greenwood Library patrons. Some regular Greenwood Library programs will be provided at alternate locations. Check the Library’s calendar of events for a complete schedule.
