GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) -- An exciting transition is nearly underway for Mesa County's Central Library.

Starting on June 1, workers will be closing the book on the library's temporary location at 1st and Gunnison. All materials, shelves, furnishings and equipment will be moved back to the newly remodeled building at Fifth Street and Grand Avenue.

The library will be closed June 1 to 19 while they move. A re-opening celebration will be open to the public on Thursday, June 20 at the Fifth and Grand location.

If you need to get a book or DVD, you're asked to use the other branch locations at Orchard Mesa (230 East Lynwood Street), Clifton (590 32 Road, #6F), Fruita (324 N. Coulson), Palisade (119 W. 3rd Street), Gateway (42700 Highway 141), DeBeque (730 Minter Avenue) or Collbran (111 Main Street).

You can also download e-materials on their website:

Books checked out from the Central Library in May will be due in July, but you can return checked-out items at the book drop on First Street.

The improved library branch adds about 9,000 square feet of space to the old building. Study rooms, an outdoor patio, Regional History room, fiction area, community room and more are part of the new additions.
