Library closings tied to renovation

As part of its yearlong renovation, the Palm Harbor Library at 2330 Nebraska Ave. will be closed April 22-25 so its records can be converted to a new countywide automated system. Once the library reopens at noon April 25, the new system will more readily share information on books, audio-visual materials, and other items among all libraries throughout Pinellas. The library will close a second time May 5 through May 19 so furniture, books, and equipment can be moved in preparation for the second phase of the renovation. When the library re-opens, it will have a remodeled children's department. For more information, call the library at (727) 784-3332.
