Teen Writers Club, scheduled for Saturday, April 20, has been cancelled due to the instructor’s illness.
The Large Meeting Room on the North end of the building (by the main entrance) will be temporarily CLOSED from Monday, April 15 – Monday, June 3. This will allow the construction workers to replace the carpet and wall coverings in the room, as well as give the library additional storage space while other areas are being renovated.
Many of the programs scheduled in this meeting room for April have been relocated to either the Youth Services Activity Room or one of the meeting rooms at our Clarksville Branch. Please consult our online calendar for the event’s new status or location.
If you or your organization need to book a meeting room while this space is unavailable, try one of the brand new study or meeting rooms over at our newly renovated Clarksville Branch!
We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience as we continue to improve your library.
Effective immediately, the south side of the library is temporarily closed due to renovation work. This includes the Indiana Room and the Gates Computer Lab, which means:
- Genealogy programs at the Main Library are cancelled
- Computer classes at the Main Library are cancelled
- Adult Education Classes will be held at the Clarksville Branch
As the construction project moves into the next phase, some parts of the collection will become temporarily unavailable. We will update this page with more information about which specific collections are unavailable as we go.
We tentatively expect these closures to last one month, and we appreciate your patience as we go through this construction process!
The Jeffersonville Library is under the following temporary hours to accommodate its construction schedule:
|Mondays — Tuesdays||CLOSED|
|Wednesdays||9:00 a.m. — 8:00 p.m.|
|Thursdays||9:00 a.m. — 8:00 p.m.|
|Fridays||9:00 a.m. — 5:30 p.m.|
|Saturdays||9:00 a.m. — 5:00 p.m.|
Please note that this schedule ONLY applies to the Jeffersonville location and is only for the duration of the renovation project. The Clarksville Branch location will still be open its full normal schedule.
We apologize for the temporary inconvenience, but we are very excited to lead the library into the future with our envisioned improvements. These include a new Makerspace and recording studio, a new meeting room, two study rooms, a new service desk with roaming staff, self-check technology with RFID tags, and a new family restroom on the first floor. Of course, there are countless smaller improvements we plan to make along the way. You can read about all of the planned improvements on our Renovations page.
