During the ceremony, County Executive Leggett will officially turn out the lights and close the doors to the current Wheaton Library building.
After the closing ceremony, staff will begin the process of packing and moving materials, so that the site can be prepared for the new Wheaton Library and Recreation Center. The building itself will shut down in July for demolition. The new joint building is expected to open in Summer 2018.
Dates to know:
- March 13: Final day to pick up holds
- April 6: Final day to use the book drop at the current building
You can designate an alternate location for holds that have not been picked up or have not become available by March 13.
