After a week of closure to move books and get the newly completed South Wing ready, Bosler Memorial Library said that it needs one more day to work before its reopening.

The library will instead reopen for regular business on Tuesday at 10 a.m., according to a release from the library. Originally, the library planned to be closed Aug. 6 to 11 so that library staff could move the books, furnishings and computers from the original buildings, the East and West wings to the South Wing.

However, the move and related construction issues are taking longer than expected, according to the library. Staff will instead continue to work through the weekend and on Monday to ensure a smooth opening to the public on Tuesday.

The parking lot will also reopen, and the book and audiovisual drops will relocate from West High Street to the parking lot.

For the next six months, while the original East and West wings are remodeled, all library customers will enter the library via the new parking lot entrance, accessible from the rear of the library off Church Avenue. The West High Street entrance will remain closed through December until construction is complete.
