Sandwich Library Relocates To Sand Hill School Community Center

Books fill the Sand Hill School Community Center on Dewey Avenue after the building was transformed into the temporary home of the Sandwich Public Library. The temporary library will be closing Friday as the library prepares to move back to the newly renovated Main Street building.

The temporary library at the Sandwich Hill Community Center will be closing its doors on Friday, August 6, as preparations to move back into the newly renovated Main Street building begin.

As of Friday at 5 PM, the Dewey Avenue location will be closed for library business.

All library services will be suspended during the move and patrons are asked not to return any library materials until the Main Street location reopens. People are also asked not to leave any book returns or donations outside.

Overdue fines will not be assessed for books and other materials that cannot be returned as a result of the temporary closure.

“Come on down this week and get a good supply of reading material while we temporarily suspend library services,” the library said on social media.

Anyone who has been notified about an item on hold is asked to pick those items up before Friday’s closure.

The library currently anticipates reopening on Main Street on Tuesday, August 24.

Digital library services, such as access to e-books and digital films and music, will remain available through the library’s website by connecting a library card with services like Hoopla and Overdrive.
