Sharon Forks Library Closed February 19 – March 23, 2018

Construction on the second phase of the expansion and renovation project at the Sharon Forks Library is nearly complete and the branch will be closed Monday, February 19 through Friday, March 23.

Express Holds & Book Drops
Patrons may place holds on materials and choose Sharon Forks as a holds pickup location through February 5.  Holds need to be picked up by 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, February 18.  Contact library staff to assist in changing your holds pickup location while Sharon Forks is closed.  For the convenience of our patrons, a book return will remain available at the branch throughout the closure.

We invite patrons to use the Cumming, Post Road, or Hampton Park branches to reserve and pick up holds and to participate in programs for children, teens, and adults while the Sharon Forks branch is closed.
What’s Happening?
Construction crews will install remaining fixtures and trim, as well as conduct final inspections. Then, movers will install furnishings, shelving, and equipment. Finally, library staff will shelve over 100,000 books and materials.

Grand Re-Opening Celebration

We are looking forward to welcoming our patrons back to the Sharon Forks Library and we are excited for the community to see and use the finished space.

We expect to celebrate the expansion of the Sharon Forks Library with a grand re-opening ceremony on Saturday, March 24. Details on the event, as well as resuming programs for children, teens, and adults at the Sharon Forks Library, will be announced in the coming weeks.

We sincerely appreciate the patience and understanding of our patrons during construction and we’re looking forward to welcoming you back to the library soon.
