Hully gee! This is pretty major stuff:
PLEASE NOTE: Temporary Library Closures
Due to a utilities upgrade, the Main Library will be closed Saturday, April 18 through Saturday, April 25.
In addition, all Branch libraries will be closed Sunday, April 19 - Monday, April 20 and Saturday, April 25 - Sunday, April 26.
The branch libraries will be open Tuesday, April 21 through Friday, April 24, 10am - 6 pm, for limited services only.
Internet access will not be available at these locations during this time.
To reach a branch by phone during open hours, please call 504 942-0834.
The NOPL website will be available remotely, but the online catalog and our system email will be down from April 18-26.
Normal service will resume on April 27.
In other news, if you still have overdue books (slacker!), you can take them back and get your fines magically erased from your permanent record by donating to Food for Fines. The amnesty program runs through Saturday (the end of National Library Week), so get a move on -- but, as noted above, don't take 'em to the downtown branch on Saturday.
