Update on the Brunswick Library Renovation Project
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
August 2, 2018
The preconstruction planning of the Brunswick Library Renovation project has begun. Throughout the month of August 2018, library staff will be diligently preparing the library for construction that is scheduled to begin on September 4, 2018. The estimated completion time is 6 months, with a grand opening in spring 2019.
For the safety and comfort of the public, the Brunswick Library will be closed August 20, 2018 – November 30, 2018. Plumbing, HVAC, and other major work that has the potential to make the building inoperable for public use will be completed during the closure.
On December 3, 2018 the library will still be under construction, but will reopen to the public with a limited collection and hours.
During the entire renovation, the St. Simons Island Library will be fully operational. Patrons may check out, return, renew items, and pick up library holds at the St. Simons location. At any time, patrons may check the status of their library account and renew items online through www.gapines.org.
All regularly scheduled programs held at the Brunswick Library will either be at an alternate location or suspended until the renovation is complete. A listing of program dates, times, and locations will be available after August 6, 2018 at the library or on the website at www.moglibraries.org.
A temporary computer lab will be set up for public use at the Boys & Girls Club at McIntyre Court from September – November, 2018. The lab will only be available on a limited amount of weekday mornings. A complete listing of dates and times will be available after August 6, 2018 at the library or on the website.
As the Brunswick Library facility prepares to commence renovation, on August 22, 2018 the Marshes of Glynn Libraries will also commence its Turning The Page campaign. Donations to Turning The Page will allow the library to acquire needed additional educational, literary and technological assets.
