Officials with the Lafayette Public Library say that their branch in Scott will be closing.
This comes as they anticipate the opening of the new West Regional Library.
The new library is expected to open in early May of this year at 501 Old Spanish Trail in Scott.
Library Director Teresa Elberton says they will need time to load and move books from the Scott branch to the new location.
“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.“ – Teresa Elberton
The last day of the Scott Branch Library will be Monday, April 15 from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
All Scott Branch holds can be picked up, and returns can be made beginning April 16th in the drive-thru window at the new libraryl.
The library will not be open to the public yet, but drive-thru services will be available Monday – Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
