Work to close Sprague Library for 3 weeks

SHARE Work to close Sprague Library for 3 weeks

The Sprague Library, 2131 S. 100 East, will be closed for almost three weeks starting Monday, Feb. 12, due to construction.

The library is scheduled to reopen on Sunday, March 4.

"Although the project will not be totally completed at that point, we want to reopen to our patrons as soon as possible," said Kathy Daly, Sprague branch manager.

During the period of closure, all storytimes, "Book Baby" events and Internet training programs are canceled. However, library patrons may continue to return books and other materials in the outside drop box, as usual.

All materials on hold may be picked up at the Anderson-Foothill Branch, 1135 S. 2100 East.

The Sprague construction project includes a new, 200-person community meeting room on the lower level and the relocation of the children's room to the former meeting room. The move will allow for more collection space on the main level of the library.

The approximately $1 million project is funded by a bond Salt Lake City voters approved in 1998.

A grand opening celebration at the new facilities is planned for Saturday, April 21, at 10:30 a.m.
