The replacement of the eight large HVAC units on the roof of the library will require the use of heavy equipment and machinery. As a result, the exterior book drop will be closed for safety reasons during the HVAC work.
“While many of us still remember the Danville Library’s grand opening like it was yesterday, the library building is now two decades old and has attracted over five million patrons,” said Nat Rojanasathira, assistant to the town manager. “Improvements to the library restrooms, infrastructure, lighting and seating will be welcomed by the community.”
In order to minimize disruption in library service and any inconvenience to the public, library staff will provide minimal library service from the Mt. Diablo Meeting Room (south side of building across from the Danville Community Center entrance). Patrons are encouraged to place holds on any materials and will be notified via email or phone when items are ready for pick up.
Minimal Library Service Includes:
Pick up of hold materials
Catalog computers for on-site account access and/or to search and place holds on library materials
Staff assistance with e-commerce, account issues and limited reference (access to the collection will NOT be available during the closure)
Return library materials during open hours only (Exterior book drop will be closed)
Renew existing library accounts and open new library cards
This brief closure will allow the library to provide a brighter, more welcoming and comfortable space for the community and library patrons.
