Newport News, Va. – West Avenue Library in downtown Newport News will close to the public after June 28, 2013. The Library building will be repurposed for use by the Newport News Public Library System’s Technical Services division
Services to the public at West Avenue Library will be reduced beginning in mid-June, and materials from other libraries should not be requested for pickup at West Avenue Library after that time.
Other Newport News Public Library System locations remain open and unaffected, and materials for public use from West Avenue Library will be relocated to the other libraries.
“We are sorry that West Avenue Library is closing,” said Library Director Izabela M. Cieszynski. “We hope that users of West Avenue Library will feel comfortable using the other Newport News libraries, including Grissom, Main Street, Pearl Bailey and South Morrison.”
