In Your Community: Library remodel moves inside

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

We have had a very productive week at the library. Construction crews moved indoors and completed the demolition of the old service desk and both public restrooms.  It was a loud, dusty week for staff.  

We spent the week setting up our “Express Library” area in the front hall of the library and will be ready to open up to the public with limited services beginning Tuesday, Feb. 21. Doors will be unlocked 10 a.m. to noon and 4-6 p.m. for the following: 

  • Picking up reserved materials and hotspots
  • Use of the copy machine to print and scan items
  • 15 minute express use of a public computer with access to a printer.  

Staff will be available to answer the phone from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday. They can help with reserving materials and answering any questions you may have.  

Email newsletter signup

Questions can also be sent online to To reserve materials from home, the catalog can be accessed from our website at or through the library app that can be downloaded on your smartphone. Go to your app store and search for “SELCO Libraries” to download.  

Thank you for your continued patience.  

We look forward to seeing you next week!
