Construction update, February 2019
Work is nearing completion on repairs to the fire suppression system at the Ponte Vedra Beach Branch Library located at 101 Library Blvd, Ponte Vedra Beach, FL.
“We expect to re-open our library branch with full services beginning in March. That’s even earlier than originally expected,” Branch Manager Amy Ring says. “While our temporary location is cozy and has allowed us to provide basic services to patrons during the closure we are extremely excited to get back into the library branch.”
Later this month, branch staff will begin the transition back to the library branch with the intent to re-open to the public as quickly as possible. While the transition takes place, patrons will continue to be able utilize library services at the temporary storefront library located at the Tax Collector’s Annex, 5430 Palm Valley Road.
Please check back here for more updates including the date of the branch re-opening.
The Ponte Vedra Beach Branch Library, 101 Library Blvd., Ponte Vedra Beach, is temporarily closed for fire suppression system repairs.
The 24,800 square foot library, which opened in 1993, will undergo a project to replace all fire sprinkler pipes and fixtures throughout the building and library exterior. Because this project addresses the entire building’s fire suppression system, the branch must remain closed to staff, volunteers, and patrons through the duration. Work is anticipated to last 3-3 ½ months with an expected reopen date in March, 2019.
Amy Ring, Ponte Vedra Beach Library Branch Manager, says, “We understand the disruption in local service this closure will cause. We hope our patrons will take advantage of the great electronic collections we offer for borrowing and use the temporary location we have arranged to check out physical items.”
Patrons are able to return borrowed items and pick up items requested in advance at the Ponte Vedra Beach Branch Library’s temporary storefront located in the Tax Collector’s Annex at 5430 Palm Valley Road.
Annex hours are Monday-Friday, 10 am-6 pm and Saturdays 10 am-4 pm. Patrons will be able to reach library staff during open hours at the normal library phone number, 904-827-6950.
Patrons are able to return library items only during open hours as no after-hours drop box is available. Patrons are asked to please hold any donations until the library reopens in 2019.
Amy Ring, Branch Manager, says, “We are extremely grateful to have this space to offer patrons the chance to borrow and return library items while our branch is closed for fire suppression system repairs. We are really looking forward to welcoming our patrons into this new space!”
