On Thursday, December 5, library staff and community partners toured the renovated Valley Library where shelves and furniture were being installed.
Valley Library will be closed December 18-21 while books and other materials are moved from the current space into the newly-renovated library at 384 St. Croix Trail S, Lakeland.
The new Valley Library space will be larger, with two meeting rooms, movable furniture, a children’s area with tiered seating for programs and storytimes. The space also has two accessible bathrooms with diaper-changing stations and an expanded staff work area.
When Valley Library reopens on Saturday, December 21, new hours will go into effect. Community members are also encouraged to save the date for Saturday, January 11 when there will be a grand opening celebration for the new library.
