Grand Junction, Colo. (KKCO) – On Thursday, the Mesa County Public Library's main branch will reopen, fully remodeled and ready to take on the digital age of reading. The library has been under renovation for months and closed for much of this month as staff moved back into their new digs.

On Monday library officials announced they've hired Joseph Sanchez as the libraries new director. He's the former director of the Red Rocks Community College Library in Lakewood.

Thursday will hold a day full of entertainment:

• It all starts at 10 a.m. with balloons for kids.
• Then there's a senior welcome at 3 p.m.
• The re-dedication ceremony itself is at 4 p.m.
• There's also an artist's meet and greet at 6 pm.

The library will be open for business all day starting at 9 a.m.
