Frisco’s main library, Summit County Main Library, will be closing for its long-planned renovation according to a Summit Daily article from August 18. They state,
“The Summit County Main Library in Frisco is closing Sunday, Aug. 22, in preparation for renovations that will include expanded children and teen reading areas as well as additional space for working remotely, studying, and reading.
The Main Library already operates out of the County Commons, and part of the renovations will include a new entrance leading directly into the library. Once the location closes Aug. 22, patrons can still get their on-hold materials by calling 970-668-4138, but all other services will be suspended.”
However, the library will not be entirely closed for the whole duration of the makeover according to the Summit County Colorado Government news release from August 16 which states,
“Beginning Tuesday, September 7, the library will reopen and operate out of a temporary satellite location in the Buffalo Mountain Room of the County Commons building. 15-minute computer sessions with printing, picking up holds, book returns, outdoor storytime, and new books for all ages will be available.
The North Branch Library in Silverthorne and South Branch Library in Breckenridge will be open Monday – Thursday, 9 a.m.-6 p.m., and Fridays & Saturdays 9 a.m.-5 p.m. The South Branch Library in Breckenridge has several study rooms available for public use; call 970-453-3544 for more information.”
The renovation has been a planned project since 2020 where the Summit County Library Foundation worked to reach $1 million as funds for the whole operation. We look forward to the completion of this exciting renovation!
