Moving crews are relocating library materials and “the stacks” (shelves) into the “reimagined” space. Library staff is setting up the newly-remodeled space for patron services. Telephone and internet cable is being installed and tested.
The second phase of Sanibel Public Library’s “Your Library Reimagined” project is underway. Sanibel Public Library will operate out of the west half of the library until the fall, while the “old” space is being remodeled.
The Library will be closed from Saturday, January 20 through the remainder of the month, due to electrical and utility work, and to finish relocating library materials.
There will not be overdue fines assessed for materials returned late during this time. The book drop is located in the front of the building to allow patrons to return DVDs, magazines, books, and any other library material. Please do not place holds on items until library reopens. The Library’s eShelf will also be available during the time the Library is closed.
Weekly youth programs are not scheduled for the remainder of January, due to the renovation.
An update to the project was in The Islander newspaper in December.
