Aptos Branch Library Closed August 15-18

The Aptos Branch Library of the Santa Cruz Public Libraries will be closed from Monday, August 15 through Thursday, August 18, 2011 for mold removal. The branch plans to reopen on Saturday, August 20 at 11am.

Requests being held at Aptos during the closure will have their pick-up times extended by one week.

There is no danger to the public or to staff now or in the future, but the removal process is very disruptive and requires library materials and computers to be covered and unavailable.

The Capitola and Live Oak Branches will have extended hours August 15-18. Both branches will be open 11am-7pm Monday through Thursday with regular branch staff supplemented by Aptos Branch staff.

For further information, please call (831) 427-7706.
