Alfred Dickey Public Library will close for renovations beginning Tuesday, May 29, 2018, and will remain closed until further notice. It is anticipated that the library will close for at least two months, during which time the foundation will be excavated and waterproofed, and the interior will be painted and carpeted.
The work to renovate is part of the library board’s Centennial Initiative, which is a plan to preserve the historic building and modernize the aesthetics of the interior in honor of the first century of service for the library.
During the closure, full library service will be provided at Stutsman County Library located at 910 5th St. SE. Hours for Stutsman County Library will be expanded while the Alfred Dickey Library is under renovation: 9 am to 8 pm Monday through Thursday, 9 am to 6 pm on Friday, and 11 am – 4 pm on Saturday.
