The Ukiah Library will be closed from March 10th - March 31st for interior renovations. During the closure there will be an alternate location at 280 E. Standley for holds to be picked up and returns to be dropped off as well as a time to visit the Bookmobile on Fridays.
The temporary location will be just down the street from the Ukiah Library and recently housed a haunted house and previously was the County Probation building. Starting on March 12th it will be open Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday from 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm, and Friday from 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm for the return of checked out items and for hold pick-ups. The small lobby will be open for library item pick-ups and drop-offs only, and no other services will be available during the closure. There will be no public restrooms or places to sit, and WiFi will not be available. During the closure on Fridays the Bookmobile will be stationed at 280 E. Standley from 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm for patrons to check out items from the Bookmobile.
The Ukiah Library renovations will include the installation of a new circulation desk, new carpet, fresh paint, and new public internet carrels. The Ukiah Library will also be receiving an exterior washing and painting this year, but the timing is dependent on the weather and will not require a closure. The library improvements and maintenance are paid for by proceeds from Measure A which is a 1/8 cent sales tax approved by voters in 2011 to support Mendocino County Libraries.
