Library “Soft Opening” Set for February 1
Full Closure Scheduled for Week of January 25
Work on the Library’s refurbishing project is approximately 50% complete, with construction
now continuing on the Adult Services side of the Library. The Library has scheduled a “soft
opening” for Monday, February 1. All collections will be available for use and staff members
will be ready to serve, yet Library users and staff alike will be operating in a dry run type of
fashion and it may take a week or two for all to acclimate to the new environment. Stay
tuned for a more formal reopening celebration or open house to take place a month or so
later. Library staff as well as the Board of Trustees are already excited about opening our
doors to the community.
To accommodate work that has been planned for the Library’s lower-level Meeting Room,
the Library will fully close to the public during the week of January 25—31. There will be no
services at all offered that week.
Please continue to refer to the Library’s website at www.brookfieldpubliclibrary.info for the
latest information related to the refurbishing project as well as for sneak peek pictures of the
newly refurbished facility.

Brookfield Library Refurbishing Project to Begin November 23
The Library’s partial closure to accommodate the anticipated refurbishing project will begin on Monday, November 23. It is expected that the Library will be closed for a six to eight week period and that it will reopen fully in mid to late January 2010. The side entrance on Lincoln Avenue will be opened so that users can still access the Internet via laptops in the Library’s lower-level Meeting Room. The Library’s hours during this period of construction will remain the same.
The Riverside Public Library has graciously agreed to be the service point for Brookfield residents who may need to apply for new library cards or renew existing ones during the coming closure. Riverside will also be the pickup point for all holds placed in SWAN. Please refer to the listing below for services that will be offered at each of the respective libraries and stay tuned to the Library’s website at www.brookfieldpubliclibrary.info for the most up-to-date information:
