The West Entrance of the Central Library will be closed May 15-16 for repair. Patrons may use the East Entrance instead during that time.

The West Entrance of the Mesa County Libraries Central Library in downtown Grand Junction will be closed Monday and Tuesday, May 15 and 16, while the doors and glass storefront are replaced.

The West Entrance faces the intersection of Fifth Street and Grand Avenue.

During the project, all Central Library visitors should use the East Entrance, which faces Sixth Street.

 The library will continue to be open regular hours during the project. Parking on the west (Fifth Street) side of the building will continue to be available. The Novel Idea book shop inside the West Entrance also will remain open. The bike racks and bicycle repair station will be accessible, but inconvenient.

Library visitors in the vicinity of the west doors may be able to hear construction noise during the project.

The west doors and entryway were damaged by severe weather in 2022, necessitating their replacement.

“The project has been in development for over a year, and we are very thankful to see it finally moving into the installation phase,” said Jennifer Deering, facilities manager for Mesa County Libraries. “Thanks for your patience while we complete this very important work!”
