Beginning January 5, the Lawrence Branch will be closed for renovation. If you wish to return materials to the branch, please do so by January 4. No items can be returned to Lawrence after this date and no services will be provided at the branch during the renovation.
If you have requested materials to be picked up at Lawrence, they will be delivered to the Glendale branch beginning December 19.
The Lawrence Branch opened in 1967 on North Franklin Road in a storefront previously occupied by the Lawrence Post Office. It was the first branch to open within an incorporated town in Marion County. Rapid population growth demonstrated the need for a larger, permanent facility to serve the northeast side. A 3.44 acre site was purchased from MSD Lawrence Township for a new 13,500-square-foot library that opened in 1983.
