SOUTH BEND, Ind. – The St. Joseph County Public Library in downtown South Bend will soon close its doors at the main branch for renovations as the library relocates to the former Brown Intermediate building.
The move will take effect at the beginning of November — October will be the last month of operation in the downtown location.
Lisa O’Brien, who is the Director of Development and Continuous Improvement for the library, says she understands concerns that the move may affect the specialized services the library provides.
“Local and family history and our studio 304 services,” O’Brien said, “those are the two that people were very concerned about because they’re very specialized services, that serve a unique population and you can’t find those services at [other] branches.”
The temporary location will open with special early morning hours.
