The Poulsbo branch of the Kitsap Regional Library is set to close temporarily from March 9- May 31.
According to a press release from branch manager Sharon Lee, the Library will be undergoing some much-needed updates during this time. The updates include new paint, carpet, and electrical work as well as more seating better lighting and space for children and families farther away from the main entrance area.
During this time the upstairs meeting room and Small Business Development Center will not be available, but the downstairs meeting room will still be open with limited availability and reservations honored.
The total cost of the update will be $652,000 with the majority of those funds coming from a 2017 levy as well as from the library’s capital budget. An additional $40,000 will be coming from the Poulsbo Friends of the Library board as well.
Programs traditionally held at this location will be hosted elsewhere.
