Home sweet (temporary) home for Farmington library
The doors to the relocated Dakota County Library in Farmington opened at noon on Monday, and it took visitors little time to find the new location.
In fact, it took less than 15 minutes for at least a dozen patrons to find their way up to the second level of Farmington City Hall, where the library is located for the next six months or so.
The temporary library is set up in a conference room on the north side of city hall. It’s got most of the amenities of the regular library – albeit, downsized – complete with computers for public use, a children’s section, tables and chairs, and the “hold” rack for books.
The library will be housed at Farmington City Hall until a renovation project at the library building across the street is complete, sometime in the summer of this year.
Hours of operation at the temporary location are: Monday and Tuesday, noon to 8 p.m.; Wednesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.; and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The library is closed on Sundays.
