The Manteca Library is finally going to get its long-awaited new flooring.
That’s the good news. The bad news in order to allow for proper installation, the library is temporarily closing for four weeks to allow workers to remove the old carpet, move bookshelves, furniture and equipment and then install new flooring.
The last day of regular library hours will be on Sunday, Oct. 30. The Library is scheduled to tentatively reopen on Wednesday, Nov. 30.
Manteca library due dates will be adjusted to accommodate the closure and reduce the risk of patrons incurring fines.
During the closure staff advises patrons they can access other branches of the Stockton-San Joaquin County Library System including the Lathrop Branch Library located in the Lathrop Generations Center, 450 Spartan Way, near Lathrop High and the Ripon Branch Library at 333 W. Main St. in downtown Ripon.
Upon reopening, the Library will be able to continue offering the same level of service including library computers, access to the library’s W-Fi Internet connection, regular All About Baby and Preschool Storytimes, and other educational and recreational programs for all ages.
The library staff thanks everyone for their patience and understanding during this time of transition, and look forward to continuing to serve the community.
