Hi! I am Doriene Smither, manager of the East Washington branch library. We are closed this month as we prepare to move into a temporary location one block east at 2902 East Washington Street. This branch is one of two existing Carnegie libraries, and it opened in 1911, so it is due for some improvements. We will add square footage to increase the number of computers we will have, and install an elevator to make the building accessible, all while preserving the historic character of the original.

While we are closed, no returns can be accepted, and no holds will be available.

When we reopen at our temporary location, we will resume our normal hours of operation. We will still have public computers and a DVD collection, and patrons will be able to return all materials and pick up holds. Check our web page or our Facebook page or call 275-4360 for updates. In the meantime, please visit nearby Spades Park, the Irvington branch or any other branch convenient to you!
