The Pierce County Library in Sumner will close for more than a month starting July 30 for repairs and upgrades.
The library at 1116 Fryar Ave. will reopen Sept. 4.
Patrons are still invited to place books and other items on hold at www.piercecountylibrary.org during that time. They can pick up materials in the library meeting room from 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Mondays to Wednesdays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays, and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturdays.
The work will cost $363,500 and will include replacing the roof and heating and cooling system, improving ventilation in the restrooms and installing a central customer service desk, the library system said.
The City of Sumner owns the building and is picking up half the cost for the roof work, said Mary Getchell, spokeswoman for the library system.
By the end of this year, all 18 locations in the library system will have central customer service firstname.lastname@example.org
