Remodeling to close Central St. library branch


The North Branch of the Evanston Public Library, at 2026 Central St., will be closed next week to enable staff to remodel the circulation desk.

The branch will close at 6 p.m. this Saturday, Aug. 8, and will reopen on Monday, Aug. 17, at 10 a.m., according to a library announcement.

The book drop at that location will remain open, however.

“Please pick up all reserves by Saturday, Aug. 8, or change the pickup location or suspend them until we reopen,” the announcement said.
