The Knoxville Public Library is expected to re-open on Aug. 15 at its regular operating hours 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Staff members have been working very hard to get prepared in the new building.

“We want it to look nice and organized when we open,” says Director Roslin Thompson.

The library was scheduled to re-open on Aug. 5, but a slight delay in delivery of shelving end-panels and signage has postponed the opening.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony is still scheduled for Aug. 24 at 10 a.m.
