Belmar Library will soon undergo renovations to provide patrons with convenient self-service options and improved access to materials and resources in one of our busiest libraries. The library will close at 5 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 20 and reopen at 10 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 16.
Enhancements will include eight self-check units; a holds pickup area; additional shelving to house the library’s extensive collection; and six new patron computers, bringing the total to 49.
The Friends Gift and Book Shop, located inside the Belmar Library, will also be closed during renovations. To celebrate Belmar Library’s reopening, Friends is holding a "Beluga" of a Used Book Sale in both the Belmar meeting room and the Friends Gift and Book Shop. We'll be giving away a large stuffed Beluga and offering some great promotions. Shop on Saturday, Feb. 16 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. and Sunday, Feb. 17 from noon-4 p.m
