Amelia Library to close early Sept. 29 and be closed Sept. 30

Please be aware the Amelia Library will close at 2 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 29, and be closed all day Friday, Sept. 30, unless rain delays parking lot repairs. The library is expected to be open Saturday, Oct. 1. New blacktopping will be installed. The parking lot, including the drop boxes, will not be available from 2 p.m. Sept. 29 until 9 a.m. Oct. 1. Books and other library materials can be dropped off at any other library. Click on locations above for library addresses and phone numbers or on My Account to renew the library materials online. A large portion of the parking lot has been deteriorating the last several years. When repairs began in August, unexpected issues were found when the asphalt was removed. There was minimal base material and the soil underneath was saturated with water. These issues had to be fixed before new blacktopping was installed. We appreciate the patience of our patrons.
