The Pierce County Library System is closing Lakewood Pierce County Library Sunday, June 5, to prepare to offer service in a short-term location planned to open in late 2022.
Architects recently examined the 59-year-old building and concluded it is in critical condition. The costs for repairs and replacements outweigh the value of the building. At this time, the Library System does not plan to invest further in the current building and determined further investments are cost-prohibitive. The Library System will await a recommendation from a community advisory committee and a decision by the Board of Trustees before investing further.
The Library System and the City of Lakewood formed a community advisory committee to understand public input from recent years, review the significant building needs, and provide advice to the Library System about how it could best provide library services for Lakewood. The committee will review and assess information and make a recommendation to the Pierce County Library’s Board of Trustees in fall 2022, on how to provide library service in Lakewood.
Closing the building will give staff time to move books and materials, computers and equipment, as well as furniture for use in the short-term location.
The Library System is looking for space near the Lakewood Library in Lakewood Towne Center, for a short-term location, which may expand to a temporary location.
