JAMESTOWN, N.D. (NewsDakota.com) – Alfred Dickey Public Library will close for patron safety during renovations beginning Tuesday, May 29th and will remain closed until further notice.

“It is anticipated that the library will close for at least two months, during which time the foundation will be excavated and waterproofed, and the interior will be painted and carpeted,” states Development Director Bill Kennedy.

“The work to renovate ADPL is part of the library board’s Centennial Initiative, which is a plan to preserve the historic building and modernize the aesthetics of the interior in honor of the first century of service for the library.”

During the closure of ADPL, full library service will be provided at Stutsman County Library located at 910 5th St. SE. Hours for Stutsman County Library will be expanded while ADPL is under renovation: 9 am to 8 pm Monday through Thursday, 9 am to 6 pm on Friday, and 11 am – 4 pm on Saturday.

The bookmobile will provide library service in the vicinity of Alfred Dickey Public Library on selected days in June and July. The renovations are part of the Centennial Initiative as they work to bring themselves into a more modern library before they turn 100 in February 2019.
