The Arlington Library will close Sept. 8 for shelf replacement and will reopen Sept. 15.

The returns drop box will also be closed. Customers with items to return may keep them until Sept. 15 or return them to another Sno-Isle library. Requested items that are ready for pickup will be held during this time to be picked up after Sept. 15, or customers may choose another library in advance as the pickup location for their requests.

The library’s old wood shelves will be replaced with new shelving to improve the airflow and lighting in the building. Old computer desks will also be replaced. New additions will include three catalog computer stations and tables to accommodate laptop users.

Oso song: Singer and songwriter Star Nayea and children from the Sauk-Suiattle Tribe are scheduled to perform a tribute to the victims of the Oso mudslide Saturday in Darrington. They plan to sing a song written by the children with Nayea’s help called “Oso Strong Highway 530.”

Arlington country singer Jesse Taylor and Seattle band The Beautiful Strangers are also set to perform Saturday.

The music is part of Darrington’s last summer Street Fest, starting at 4 p.m. in downtown Darrington. The event also includes food vendors, games for children and “The Goonies” as an outdoor movie.
