Port Orchard Library reopens Friday

“Renovation Celebration” will begin at 10 a.m. Friday, Nov. 1, at the Port Orchard Libary with a ribbon cutting scheduled with a short ceremony thanking donors, along with guided tours and children’s activities.

Guided tours of the building are set at 10:35 a.m. and 1 p.m. Toddler story time is set for 10:45 a.m. and preschool story time will be 11:45 a.m. The Science Club, for school-age children, will meet at 4:30 p.m. and the library will close at 6 p.m.

Wilson said following the reopening, the library will return to its regularly scheduled library programming from book groups to classes for your preschoolers and toddlers.

The library closed Aug. 31 for the renovation, which included replacing carpet, moving and redesigning the staff area and combining the circulation and reference desks into one single-service desk.

The estimated cost of the renovation was about $130,000.
