Walker Library reopening 4/26

Community, Featured, Hennepin-Lake — By on April 9, 2014 6:27 am

The Walker Library Branch of the Hennepin County Library system, 2880 Hennepin Avenue, will reopen on Saturday, April 26th after a complete rebuild. The library closed in September 2012 following an extensive public process that resulted in a modern, single-level library that has ample light and an interior indented to be flexible for future needs. The new library has approximately 50% more space for patrons than the previous building.

A grand opening is scheduled for Saturday, April 26th at 9:00am.
