Southern Oaks Library to Move to Temporary Location


The Southern Oaks Library, 6900 S. Walker, will be moving to a temporary location at 2914 S.W. 59th Street (SW 59th and S. May) beginning on April 4, 2011.  The current library will be undergoing an extensive renovation project that will last at least one year. The library’s current location will be closed Monday, April 4 through Sunday, April 24. This closing is to allow time for staff to move all materials and equipment necessary to operate the new library.  The library’s new location, in the Almonte Shopping Center, is expected to reopen Monday, April 25 at 9:00 a.m.
