Atkinson

Restricted Access to Computers and Collection October 9 thru November 4
New carpeting will be installed at Atkinson Library Oct. 9 thru Nov. 4. During this time, access to part or all of the collection, and to computers, may be restricted due to possible tripping hazards. 

Atkinson branch located at 1960 W. Atkinson Ave., opened in January 1961 as the first in a 10-year program to provide large regional libraries throughout the City within a two-mile radius of anywhere in the city. The building's unique architecture is highlighted by a beamed, cathedral vaulted ceiling, woodwork and modern stained glass windows. The branch was renovated in 1994.

Branch Manager: Casey Lapworth
