The library is moving!  We will be open for our regular hours on Saturday, March 29, and Monday, March 31.  Come in and stock up on books and DVDs to carry you through our closure!  All materials will be due after our grand re-opening on Saturday, April 12.  You may continue to return materials to our outdoor book drop during our closure. 

 

The new library is located just across the parking lot from our current library, at 17455 SW Farmington Road (between Aloha Animal Medical Center and US World Class Taekwondo).  Grand re-opening festivities will begin at 10am on Saturday, April 12.  A storybook character parade begins at 10am at the current library and ends at the new library.  All children are welcome to join us along with at least one adult.  All are welcome to stay for a special storytime right after the parade.  The program continues at 11am with a group of very special speakers to help us celebrate this landmark occasion.  Join us for goodies and tour the library!
