Starting in early June, the St. Anthony Park Library, 2245 Como Ave., will close to begin facility upgrades that will include creating more community space by redesigning the customer service desk area and installing an automated materials handling system. Currently, the library is planning to reopen on Aug. 1.
Summer Reading Program events will be relocated to St. Anthony Park United Methodist Church, 2200 Hillside Ave., through June and July. The program is scheduled to return to the library in August.
The project will not affect the St. Anthony Park Library Association’s annual book sale, scheduled during the St. Anthony Park Arts Festival on Saturday, June 1.
During the renovation, library customers can visit other St. Paul Public Libraries, including Hamline Midway Library, 1558 W. Minnehaha Ave., or Merriam Park Library, 1831 Marshall Ave.
