The Fayetteville Public Library’s highly anticipated expansion project is getting close to completion.

Before it is unveiled, however, the library will close soon for final renovations, officials announced this week.

The library facility will officially close on Monday, Sept. 28 as construction crews put the finishing touches on the $49 million expansion project.

From the announcement:

While there have been many unpredictable changes to what we thought our year would look like, we are happy to report that the work on our expansion continued, and we are in the final stage of this exciting new chapter for the library.

A significant aspect of this final push is relocating and revamping many of our existing collections and spaces. Therefore, we have made the difficult decision to close our building so that we can ensure that these changes are done as swiftly and as accurately as possible, and so that we can soon invite you all into your new library! The last day for in-person collection browsing is Saturday, September 26th.

During the closure, the virtual library will continue to be available, including homework help, eBooks, audiobooks, digital magazines, and other items.

Patrons can also request and receive items from the library via curbside pickup on Monday-Saturday from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Since the library is closed on Sundays, the last day to browse for items before the closure will be Saturday, Sept. 26.

Library officials say they are not sure exactly when they’ll reopen, but that information will be available as soon as possible via their website and social media.
