BPL Friends Bookstore to Get New Temporary Hours Beginning Tuesday, September 17

In conjunction with the Central Library Monumental Stairs Project that begins Monday, September 16, 2019, the BPL Friends Bookstore is getting new temporary hours during the construction project.

The Bookstore will be open from Tuesdays through Saturdays from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Patrons will still be able to access the bookstore even though the Central Library East Building will be closed to the public and most of its services moved to the Linn-Henley Research Library between September 14 until the project is completed in early February 2020.

"The Central Library's progress has created some clutter too but you will still be able to find what you're looking for, and more," said Thracie Pace, BPL Friends Bookstore manager. " We understand the need to be open on Saturday for those of you who work throughout the week until 5:00 p.m. or so."

Pace added, "Come in on a Saturday, mention this statement and receive 10% off your purchase. Come in and see our latest arrivals and regular treasures. Cool off with cold drinks."
