Update, Update!

Dear Ortega Library Kids and Your Families,

Big changes are about to happen at Ortega Library.
The Good News is we are going to build a brand new library!
The bad news is on May 9, 2009, our old library will close its doors forever.

The Good News
is we will be opening a temporary Mini-Ortega Library on the premises!
The bad news is Mini-Ortega Library is going to be very, very, very, small.

You will no longer be able to come into the library to do your homework after school. There will be no
tables, no chairs for you to sit. We will still be here to help you with your school assignments; any way we can, but keep in mind, it’s such a small space, our resources will be limited.

Your days of procrastination are over! No more waiting until the last minute to come in and get the books
you need to fulfill your assignments the day before they’re due! Start planning ahead! If you come into the library, call the library, or go online to reserve your books as soon as your homework is assigned, you’ll do just fine. Remember, it takes about 3 days to a week for your books to arrive from another branch library.

Our Summer Reading Program will go on, as usual, as best we can this summer, but there are going to be a
few weeks when the temporary site is scheduled to close during the demolition of the old library. Our library on wheels, the Bookmobile, plans to visit twice a week while we’re closed. We’re not sure exactly when the demolition will take place, but we will let you know as soon as we know and give you more information about bookmobile days and times during this brief closure.

Remember these dates:

May 9 Ortega Library Closure. May 16 Mini-Ortega Library Opens.

Mini-Ortega Library Hours:
Sun 1-6, Mon 10-6, Tue 10-6, Wed 1-9, Thu 1-9, Fri 1-6, Sat 10-6
If you have any questions, please call 355-5700.
