The Oceanside Civic Center Library, at 330 North Coast Highway, will temporarily close for improvements starting Oct. 31, according to a press release from the city.
It may partly re-open to the public as soon as late November, and is planned to fully re-open no later than January, the press release stated. There will be limited access to the Civic Center Community Rooms and the adjoining courtyard. The Oceanside Public Library’s Mission Branch, mobile libraries, and Oceanside READS Literacy Center will not be affected; and the Library’s e-books and online services will remain available.
All carpet will be replaced by the manufacturer, at no further cost to the city per an agreement, according to the release. Taking advantage of moving shelves for the carpet work, Oceanside City Council approved $280,000 to replace the original wooden shelving, now wearing out, with steel shelves featuring wood trim.
Some popular books and other items for checkout will be transferred to Mission Branch (3861-B Mission Avenue).
