CONCORD, CA (Dec. 29, 2021) — The Concord Library will temporarily close from January 10-25, 2022, while the children’s area undergoes a refresh. This planned refresh of the section will include new paint, carpet and shelving as well as a new design of the space. For the safety of staff and patrons, the building will remain closed during the project.

A partnership between the library and the City of Concord will pay for the upgrade project.

“Improvements to the children’s section at the Concord Library are long overdue,” said County Librarian Alison McKee. “We look forward to the new design making the section more welcoming for children and their families.”

The book drop will also close and holds will not be available for pickup during the closure. Library materials not picked up by the end of the day on Saturday, January 8 will remain on the shelf. You can collect them when the library reopens on Wednesday, January 26. The library will extend the hold period an extra week to February 2.

During the closure, patrons may place holds online and pick them up at the nearby Clayton or Martinez libraries or any other Contra Costa County Library.
