The adult fiction and all non-fiction books will return and take their place in front of the new wide windows. The local history and genealogy materials now have their own divided section, and we now have a separate reading room for magazines and newspapers. The Meeting Room will be open and will seat 80 people. And of course the Children’s Room is already open; though after we open later this month, it will be dedicated to children’s services and will feature 6 new AWE early literacy stations. The new library addition and renovation will now offer 16,025 sq. ft. of library services.
Many of our residents were kind enough to provide foster care for our library materials during our construction. We greatly appreciate your participation in this effort! Everyone is now welcome to return the loaned materials so they can be placed on the shelves.
Passports will not be processed during the time the library is closed, however book returns will remain open for your convenience.
The Fernandina Beach Branch Library is expected to re-open as one completed building on Monday, April 20th. When the Library reopens, Internet access will be limited to 6 public computers while we wait for our new furniture and equipment to arrive. Wireless access will be available during this time. We appreciate your patience as we complete this process.
If you need reading materials while we are closed, visit the Friends of the Fernandina Library Semi-Annual Book Sale from April 9-11. Or visit one of our other library branches located in: Yulee, Callahan, Bryceville and Hilliard.
