LAWRENCE, Kan. - The Lawrence library has moved into a closed bookstore while work continues on an $18-million expansion project.
The Lawrence Journal-World (http://bit.ly/10vj2QZ) reports that the Lawrence Public Library closed two weeks ago. It's reopening Tuesday at the former Borders building.
Staff says the library will keep its regular hours and offer the same services and most of the same events.
Most of the library's 220,000-item collection fits in the temporary space. All of the children's books, DVDs and other media made the move, as well as the vast majority of the young-adult books.
About half of the books for adults didn't fit in the temporary space but are available on request.
