Jefferson County Library to begin moving materials for renovations

Peninsula Daily News

PORT HADLOCK — Sunday will be last day the Jefferson County Library will be open in its present location for about six months.

The library at 620 Cedar Ave. in Port Hadlock will close Monday and reopen Dec. 17 at 51 Colwell St. in Port Hadlock, which is across from Circle and Square Auto Care on Rhody Drive.

Materials will be moved so the library building can undergo a $700,000 renovation.

The library materials are expected to be back in place at a remodeled facility by June 1, Library Director Ray Serebrin said.

The 5,000-square-foot temporary location is less than half the size of the current building, so it will be a bare-bones operation, with no wireless service and a smaller selection of materials, though patrons will be able to order items from the main collection.

The remodel is being funded with community donations and $300,000 from library capital reserves.

It will include redesigned seating and lounge space to reduce crowding and a change in the layout to ease congestion, as well as more computer workstations and new shelving and storage.

Improved lighting and signage, self-service technology and new carpeting and paint also are planned.

Nearly 500 square feet will be added.
