Front Porch: New shelves coming to Arlington Library

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.

Call 360-651-7000 or go to for more information.
