NPL to Close for Asbestos Removal

Napoleon Public Library will be closed to the public and employees on Thursday, March 8, and Thursday, March 15, for the removal and disposal of asbestos material.

The Children's Department is currently undergoing a renovation, and all updates have come to a halt as asbestos has been identified in tile and adhesive that was used for original flooring in the building. The asbestos abatement will take place during two stages in which the library will be closed off to everyone. The first stage will take place Thursday, March 8. All scheduled programs, including the book discussion in the Adult Department, have been canceled. The second stage will take place Thursday, March 15.

The Children's Department will remain closed to the public until the new flooring is installed and furniture has been moved to new locations. We anticipate all project work to be complete by mid April
