In anticipation of opening the new West Regional Library in Scott in early May, the Scott Branch Library is closing.

“We will need time to load and move books out of that location and into the new one,” said Library Director Teresa Elberson. “The old shelving and furniture will need to be moved out of the leased building as well. We do realize it is an interruption in library service, but closing allows us to move faster. An opening date for West Regional Library will be announced soon.”

The last day the Scott Branch Library location (5808 W. Cameron) will be open for business is Monday, April 15 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

All Scott Branch holds can be picked up, and returns can be made beginning April 16 in the drive-thru window at the new library at 501 Old Spanish Trail. The library will not be open to the public yet, but drive-thru services will be available Monday – Friday from 10 AM to 3 PM.
