San Carlos Library closing for renovations
May 01, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report
The San Carlos Library is closing to make way for six months of renovations but a temporary space on the second floor of the current building will offer bibliophiles access to limited services.

The library will close its doors at 5 p.m. Saturday, May 18 with plans to reopen in early November 2013. On May 28, a temporary library will offer browsing of high-demand items, checkout and return of library materials, holds, access to public computers, printing and limited library programming.

The improvement project will reconfigure the existing layout into a more functional library with specific space for teens, quieter reading and study areas, displays of new books, clustered public computers, an expanded children’s room, toddler-appropriate computers, self-check stations and a “colorful, fresh ambiance,” according to an announcement of the planned closure.

The temporary hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, noon to 8 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. The library will be closed Friday and Sunday. Bookmobile services will be offered from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. the third Sunday of every month.

What do you think of the pending closure of Tpumps in downtown San Mateo?

Surprised, it was super popular
Makes sense, the shop was too small
Hope they find their way back to San Mateo soon
There are plenty of other boba tea places
Glad, boba drinks make the sidewalks a sticky mess
