PRESS RELEASES - APRIL 2006

Central Library Announces More Temporary Closures This Month
Renovations are Targeted for Completion in Late May

April 6, 2006

The George W. Hawkes Central Library in downtown Arlington will be closed from 6 p.m. Monday, April 17 through Friday, April 21 for construction and remodeling work. The library is scheduled to reopen to the public at 9 a.m. Saturday, April 22.

Renovations include floor and lighting improvements in the foyer and new customer service desks. The book drop is being upgraded, Quick Check machines are being installed, and the children’s area is being redesigned and expanded. These improvements are scheduled to be completed by late May 2006.

Because of the improvements, the book drop located outside of the Central Library remains closed through late April. During regular library hours, books should be returned inside of the library. After business hours, items for the Central Library may be returned at any branch library book drop.

Central Services Administrator Starr Krottinger said library staff are eagerly awaiting the arrival of a new welcoming environment and opportunities to serve customers more efficiently.

"We continue to ask for your patience as we work through these improvements," Krottinger said.

For more information about renovations at the George W. Hawkes Central Library, call 817-459-6925 or e-mail krottingers@ci.arlington.tx.us.
