Library closing Monday for two weeks

The Lodi Public Library is heading back to its Locust Street location after seven months at its temporary accommodations on Pine Street. The library is open Saturday and Sunday at 212 W. Pine St., and then is closed until Aug. 3.

Overall, $1.6 million has been spent on library improvements and renovations in the last year, with the Lodi Public Library Foundation, federal block grant funds and Lodi's General Fund the major funding sources.

Here are some pictures taken Friday as workers near the end of the renovation, which includes a new heating/air conditioning system, new carpet, children's area, new furniture, renovated restrooms (including two family restrooms) and a new entrance ramp.

I am so happy to see the renovations - it looks beautiful. Thank you to the staff and board members, and those who donated - for making this happen.

Beautiful! The staff will be able to provide better services now that the HVAC has been replaced, and the work areas have been upgraded and the work flow system improved! The community should see a huge improvement in service and quality now! Kudos to the library staff and contractors for a great job!
