. The library will re-open Saturday, September 9th.
Although the library building at Peoria Main will be closed, the book drop will be open and available. Patrons will still be able to receive library services from Sunrise Mountain Library and from the Peoria Public Library website.
During the closure, the library will be undergoing routine enhancements including new furniture, carpet cleaning and the reconfiguration of several key areas of the library.
