The Fort Worth Library system will begin work on much-needed facility improvements at three branches, resulting in temporary closures or limited service.
Southwest Regional Library
More than 25,000 square feet of flooring throughout the library will be replaced March 16-May 25. The Southwest Regional Library will temporarily offer limited services, including in‐person returns and customer pickup of reserved books. In order to provide space for these pickup and drop-off services, the meeting room at Southwest Regional Library will be unavailable for rental or reservation during construction. Customers will not have access to the main body of the library.
Staff will provide many programs at R.D. Evans and Worth Heights community centers. Library branches that remain full‐service during this time that are closest to Southwest Regional Library include the Wedgwood and Ridglea branches in addition to a MetroPac partner library in Benbrook.
Riverside Branch Library
The Riverside Branch Library will be temporarily closed March 25-May 11. Library staff will hold a variety of community programs at Riverside Community Center and continue work with community partners.
Library branches that remain full‐service during this time that are closest to Riverside Branch Library include the Northside and Central branches.
Diamond Hill/Jarvis Branch Library
More than 8,000 square feet of flooring throughout the library will be replaced. The Diamond Hill/Jarvis branch will offer limited services March 30-May 18 by accepting in‐person and book‐drop returns as well as customer pickup of reserved books. Customers will not have access to the main body of the library.
The library’s story times and other programs will be held at the North Tri‐Ethnic Community Center. Patrons who would like to use the closest, full‐service library during this time may visit the Northside Branch Library.
Summer Worth Reading
Library customers are encouraged to use any of the other library locations open throughout Fort Worth as well as the many online resources, including downloadable music, audio books, e‐books and access to learning resources.
All three locations are expected to reopen for the Summer 2018 Worth Reading program.
