Tomahawk Public Library to close for a monthSubmitted: 08/28/2014
Story By Lauren Stephenson


TOMAHAWK - People living in the Tomahawk area will need to find another library for a while.

The Tomahawk Public Library will be closed for the month of September. No library materials will be due during that time.

While the library is closed, the space will get a more than $80,000 facelift.

All carpeting will be replaced and all walls will be repainted.

The project will be paid for through the library's reserve fund.

"Right now we're encouraging everyone to stock up. We will be closed for the full month of September, so we're asking everybody to come up and check out their materials. We will be open through Saturday. Our hours on Saturday are 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.," said Tomahawk Public Library Director Mary Dunn.

The Children's Department Play & Learn program will still be held on Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Rodeway Inn.

Newspaper subscriptions will still be available at the Tomahawk Senior Center Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 12 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

"Within a 20-mile radius of us, north, east and south, are three beautiful libraries. The Minocqua Public Library, the Rhinelander District Library and the Merrill Library. And our library card works at all three locations, and it also works in Wausau, too," Dunn explained.

The library is urging people who use the library's wireless internet to go to local businesses that offer WiFi. You can call the Tomahawk Chamber of Commerce at (715) 453-5334 for a full list of businesses that offer WiFi.
