APPLE VALLEY – The Newton T Bass Apple Valley Branch Library has been closed for major repairs for approximately three years. The approximate $2.5 million contract for the repairs was not awarded until March 2016, nearly a year after the major wind-caused damage to the roof was sustained.
Residents have been using a makeshift portable unit as their library throughout the years, but it just has not been the same for those who used the once large, beautiful, and busy library. When residents heard of the upcoming reopening, it came as almost a shock as a result of the extended time period for repairs. The reopening will be a celebration; a ‘Grand Reopening’ where there will be a ribbon cutting, followed by family fun including a DJ, face painting, crafts, giveaways and appearances by Captain America and Princess Belle.
“This will be an outstanding day for Apple Valley,” said Board of Supervisors Chairman Lovingood, a resident of Apple Valley. “This is a great town with great people and we are thanking them for their patience and support with a greatly improved library.”
The newly renovated library, located at 14901 Dale Evans Parkway will offer over 25,000 new books and materials for visitors to enjoy.
