Marble Falls Public Library reopens Sept. 3 with fresh look

JARED FIELDS • PICAYUNE STAFF

MARBLE FALLS — Bookworms soon can again enjoy browsing aisles of hardcovers and pondering the Dewey Decimal System.

The Marble Falls Public Library is scheduled to reopen its doors Sept. 3. The library closed July 20 for renovations, including new paint, carpet, lighting and electrical work.

Library director Mary Jackson said the facility will open with regular hours, 10 a.m.-6 p.m., and books checked out before the closure will be due Sept. 3.

“We’re getting a few (returned books) along the way,” Jackson said. “I suspect we’ll get a whole bunch that day.”

Books can be returned before the reopening in the drop-off on the north wall of the library, 101 Main St.

The library also received a grant for new furniture, Jackson said, although it will be some time before the furniture is built and brought inside.

Also in September, the library is sponsoring Dinosaur George, an exhibit with more than 150 reptile, dinosaur and Ice Age pieces at Lakeside Pavilion, located on Buena Vista Drive. The event is free to all ages Sept. 10-11.

The Lunch with an Author series continues Sept. 20 with Tina Towner Pender and her story as a photographer at the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas.
