Due to construction your worst fears have come true (to make way for all of your dreams to come true)

We have begun moving some library materials to a temporary location. During this process, those collections will not be accessible to patrons or staff since they will be wrapped to protect from construction dust and debris. This may take two or more weeks. In the meantime, you can check out up to 20 items total and may renew your books up to 3 times (for a total of nine weeks), unless there are holds reserved. These are the typical limits on library materials, but probably come in particularly handy right now.

We previously published that library staff would retrieve materials for patrons while we are in the process of moving the stacks into the new section of the building. We will not be able to do this after all.

It pains us to restrict the availability of materials to our loyal patrons. Fortunately, we have been able to negotiate with the contractors to keep The Library open throughout construction.

You may be able to find the items you are looking for at one of our other branches; Clark Fork, Bookmobile, or in electronic form in the Digital Library at www.eBonnerLibrary.org. Materials that remain in circulation, may be moved around a lot. We expect and welcome your questions.

Librarians are standing by to assist you.
