The Blasco Library will be undergoing renovations in our entryway and first floor starting April 18th.  As we prepare for construction, you may notice things are not quite where you remember.

We will be open during renovations and will continue to offer programs and services as scheduled.

Expect to see lots of changes throughout the upcoming months as we remodel the check-out and information desks and build our innovative ideaLAB. Our study rooms will be closed for the duration of the renovation, however we are pleased to offer quiet study areas in the Peninsula Room and Heritage Room.

Please let us know if you have any questions and we look forward to serving you during this time. Please call the Blasco Library or email us. Thank you for your patience and patronage!
