The library is getting ready to move to the San Marino Center this summer, we will be there for about 18 months while the old library is being demolished and rebuilt. You may have noticed little yellow and green stickers on books lately, only the books marked “TEMP” will be available for checkout, the other books marked “STORAGE” will be packed into storage boxes. Because the Temporary Library can only house about one-third of the materials we have, we need to put the rest in storage until 2008. We will continue to buy new books, magazines, DVDs, and audiobooks, which is why we can’t bring over all of our existing books.
The librarians have taken great care to only bring the most up-to-date nonfiction, most popular fiction authors, and most researched subjects to the Temporary library. We plan to maintain the same level of reference service even though we’ll be in a smaller space. If something you need is unavailable or packed away in storage, we will find it for you at another library. We apologize for the inconvenience; please bear with us as we take some necessary steps to bring you a brand new, state-of-the-art, San Marino Public Library.
