The North Valley Library will celebrate it’s re-opening with a formal ceremony at 2:30 p.m. Friday May 2 followed by various family activities. The branch library, which is at 7704 Second NW, was closed nine months ago because of extensive smoke damage from a fire.

Renovations include a new HVAC systems, new carpeting, new paint and blinds, sandblasted and refinished wood ceilings, more power and data for computers, upgraded energy efficient lighting, and an enhanced security and fire monitoring system.

The project was done by Paul Davis Restoration & Remodeling and Williamson Restoration, the city government reported in a news release.

Users will find a refreshed community library including extensive book and media collections, computers, reading areas, study rooms, and a community room, according to the release. More enhancements are expected shortly when donations to the Library Foundation and Friends will create a new adult reading area, a new young adult area, and an Early Literacy Center.

The North Valley Library’s hours will be 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, and 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Thursdays. Closed Sundays and Mondays.
