The city of Sanibel reported today that the Sanibel Public Library is embarking on Phase II of the Your Library Reimagined project. In preparation for the second phase, the library will be closed from Jan. 20-31, with plans for it to reopen on Feb. 1.

During the time, the library will “move” in order to operate out of the newly-remodeled space. The transition will entail electrical and utility work, along with the relocation of library materials.

Officials reported that the library’s eShelf – for eBooks and downloadable audiobooks, movies, music and magazines – will be available during the time that the library is closed. The book drop in the front of building will allow patrons to return DVDs, magazines, books and any other library material.

Overdue fines will not be assessed during the closure period.

The library will not be taking requests for holds or interlibrary loans until it reopens. Those who need printing, fax and notary services can contact SanCap Pak-n-Ship or Qwik Pack & Ship.

In addition, the Sanibel Captiva Chamber of Commerce has a list of locations with public WiFi access for those who need it. Visit sanibel-island.sanibel-captiva.org for more information.

Questions can be directed to the library at 239-472-2483.

The Sanibel Public Library is at 770 Dunlop Road.
