Temporary closure slated for Waimea library

Thelma Parker Memorial Public and School Library in Waimea will be closed Tuesday through Oct. 13.

The closure is required because of repairs to the electrical circuitry at adjacent Waimea Middle School will require a shutdown of the electrical system that the library shares with the school. Officials determined the precaution was necessary for the health and safety of our library staff and patrons.

The book drop at Thelma Parker Library will remain available during the closure.

The library is scheduled to re-open for normal hours, 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., on Oct. 14.
