Library will Be Closed for Three Weeks

 The Oaxaca Lending Library will be closed beginning June 21 to July 12.


The construction project next door which will culminate in a small hotel, is at the phase where plumbing and electrical work, as well as the digging of a new cistern is at hand. Further, there will be a new surface on the walkway/concourse from the street.


Due to these projects there will be no access to the library. The good news is that the project is on its way to being concluded and the disruption, noise and inconvenience will soon be at an end.


Please come to the library up until Saturday, June 19 at 1:00pm to check out and return materials. The book drop outside the library will be inaccessible so there will be no overdue fines for the month of July.  For additional information or renewals please call 951 518 7077.
