Swanville Library to close for one week for remodeling

The Swanville Library will be closed beginning Tuesday through Saturday, April 7, for remodeling. It will reopen Monday, April 9.

The library is expanding at its current location at 213 DeGraff Ave. The 400 square foot expansion is being funded by a $25,000 grant from the Swanville Lions Club and with additional support from the city of Swanville.

The expansion will provide more shelving space and a reading area, and make it possible to better organize the available space. A crew of 25 community volunteers is assisting library staff with the work, Branch Manager Diane Borgert said.

Borgert said the project has taken two years from initial discussions to completion.

Normal hours for the library are 2 p.m. – 6 p.m. Mondays; 2 p.m. – 8 p.m. Wednesdays; 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Thursdays and 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. Saturdays. The library is closed Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
