Extreme makeover: library edition. That’s right, the Denair Library will soon be closed for an interior remodel, giving some much-needed tender love and care to the space’s outdated floor plan.

From Aug. 19 through Sept. 9, crews will be hard at work bringing a more functional and inviting look to the library, complete with fresh paint, new LED lighting, new carpeting, attractive furnishings and an updated, modern floor plan.

The library has not seen any significant updates since its current lease began in 1976, according to Stanislaus County Library, and the building’s current furnishings and floor plan are outdated and inadequate for the needs of the community. The $60,000 remodel is part of the SCL’s overall goal to provide a layout that both reflects community needs and provides a comfortable reading space.

Staff currently working at the Denair Library will be assigned to other locations during the three weeks of remodeling, and the site’s exterior book drop will remain available to customers returning materials. Those wishing to access full library services are encouraged to visit SCL sites in Turlock, Keyes or Hughson, all of which are within seven miles of Denair.

For more information, contact the Denair Library at 209-634-1283 or the Stanislaus County Library at 209-558-7800.
