Renovations at the Morganton Public Library

The Morganton Public Library is closed for approximately two weeks (beginning Saturday, January 8, 2022) for interior renovations.

During this period, library customers may obtain materials through curbside service (from 9am-5pm Monday-Friday and 9am-4pm Saturday). Online programs will continue and staff will be available by phone (9am-6pm Monday-Friday and 9am-5pm Saturday) and email.

Interior renovations will be done upstairs and downstairs. Upstairs will see the Kistler wings, the lobby, and the circulation desk area get new paint. Downstairs the staff areas and the study rooms will get new flooring.

Between now and closing on January 8, staff will be packing up books in the young adult area, moving lots of furniture and staff items, and relocating some staff work areas.

Also, in mid to late January, exterior renovations on the Morganton Public Library will begin which will include repair of rotten wood, fascia and frieze board replacement, new gutters, and exterior paint.

The library will reopen once interior renovations are complete. During the exterior renovations it may be necessary to enter the library through the lower level handicap entrance.

Please see the library website at bcpls.org or Facebook page for updates about the renovations and closure.

For more information about curbside service or library programs please call 828-764-9260.
