The New Irondequoit Library Will Open on September 9

July 30th, 2015 by IPL Webmaster in Adults, Kids, Teens · No Comments ·


It’s time! The New Irondequoit Public Library will open on Wednesday, September 9.

The newly constructed building will include dedicated teen and children’s sections, study areas, free wi-fi, multiple meeting spaces for community groups, and fully equipped craft rooms that can be used to explore and expand our abilities.

In order to move all the books, materials, and furnishings from the two existing branches, the current Irondequoit Library branches will close in August. The Pauline Evans Branch on Cooper Rd. will close on Friday, August 7. The Helen McGraw Branch on Ridge Rd. will close a week later on Friday, August 14. All due dates on items checked out in the weeks before the temporary closing will be extended to Sunday, September 12.

Books and other materials that have been placed on hold after August 14 will be available for pick-up at the Irondequoit Town Hall. Patrons who have placed books and other materials on hold will be contacted with details.

More information about the big move will be available soon, and you can read today’s press release at the Town of Irondequoit’s website.

We’re clearing out old stock to make way for new!

We’re having a bag sale at both branches of the Irondequoit Library on all used children’s books and library discards. $3 per bag until they’re gone. Lots of great titles and authors!

Just a reminder that neither library will be accepting any donations from now until the new library book store opens in September.
