On Monday and Tuesday, December 24 and 25 (Christmas Eve and Christmas Day), Hennepin County libraries are closed.
Hennepin County Library – Webber Park, 4310 Webber Pkwy., Minneapolis, is closed indefinitely for building assessment. It is not known at this time when the library will reopen. Updates will be posted on the Hennepin County Library website at: www.hclib.org/locations
Hennepin County Property Services is evaluating the building after ceiling tiles buckled and fell to the floor last week while the library was open. An initial review determined recent heavy rains exacerbated long-standing structural issues causing the ceiling tiles to fall.
“Thankfully, no one was hurt,” said Hennepin County Commissioner Mike Opat. “For the safety of the public and staff, Webber Park Library will remain closed until we get a comprehensive look at what we’re dealing with. Hennepin County Library staff are taking steps to assist Webber Park patrons at nearby library locations.”
Webber Park Library patrons are encouraged to visit Hennepin County Library – North Regional, 1315 Lowry Ave. N., Minneapolis, during the closure. Materials on hold for patrons at Webber Park Library will be available for pickup at North Regional Library.
Patron requests with Webber Park Library as a pickup location will be changed to North Regional Library automatically. Patrons may choose an alternate pickup location by accessing their Library account online at www.hclib.org under “My Account.” For help, patrons may contact staff at any library location or online via the Library’s Ask Us service: www.hclib.org/askus
The book drop at Webber Park Library is closed. Books may be returned to nearby Hennepin County Library locations including North Regional, Sumner, Northeast, Rockford Road and Brookdale, or any Hennepin County Library location.
