Quincy Branch Library closing temporarily Feb. 24-28

If you need to use the main Quincy Branch of the Plumas County Library anytime Monday through Friday during the week of Feb. 24-28, please note that this location will be closed to the public temporarily on those dates for planned repairs.

“We are closing for those five days to allow time for some construction projects and repairs,” Plumas County Librarian Lindsay Fuchs said. “We apologize so much for any inconvenience and hope our patrons will enjoy the improvements. In the long run, it will mean good things for our community with improved comfort and access to more usable space.”

Meeting room, book drop open

Fuchs explained the book drop will remain open for returns, but visitors won’t be able to come inside and check out items that week.

Anyone who needs to use the Quincy Library meeting room is welcome to contact her in advance, as usual, to request access and arrange to pick up the key. The room will still be available while the rest of the branch is temporarily closed.

The library is closing to allow workers with the Plumas County Facility Services Department time to install heating equipment and perform construction around the fireplace hearth reading area. The fireplace will remain, but be secured and closed off for energy efficiency and to provide more square footage for new shelving to come.

New resources, more space

“We’ve been buying new items, so our collection is expanding and like many libraries, we have a finite amount of space,” Librarian Fuchs said. “Now we’ll be able to use that wall space for more bookshelves and to increase accessibility for our customers.”

Fuchs added that patrons are welcome to call the library now at 283-6310 with any questions about services or the temporary closure. The phone message line will remain in operation that week, too.

She also expressed appreciation for the county’s facilities crew and the work they will be doing, saying the team has been very helpful in planning the work.
