Our HVAC is still broken, they have identified the broken parts and are working to figure out a repair, but we have not yet been given a timeline for re-opening. We will be opening next Tuesday July 23 from 1-6:30 to pick up your holds (and your children’s pottery plates)! Come to the downstairs, Midvale Garden entrance to pickup – please bring your library card with you. If the closure is ongoing, we will open every day for holds pickup; please keep an eye out for updates.
