The Springhill public library could open its doors again by September, but for now the service is setting up a new temporary location.

Starting June 19 the library will have a service available one day per week at the Dr. Carson and Marion Murray Community Centre, moving across the road from its current temporary setup at Nova Scotia Community College.

The Springhill public library could open its doors again by September, but for now the service is setting up a new temporary location.

Starting June 19 the library will have a service available one day per week at the Dr. Carson and Marion Murray Community Centre, moving across the road from its current temporary setup at Nova Scotia Community College.

"One of the reasons why we moved is that we're going to have some children's books there, so we can still run our summer reading program and our teen summer reading program," explained Beth Clinton, assistant librarian for the Cumberland Regional Library, noting the limited summer hours available at the community college.

The library set up a temporary service at the community college after a fire damaged its building on Main Street in March. It was considering locating at the community centre at that time, according to Clinton.

"The original reason we went to the community college was because the community centre had nowhere to store books, and we would have had to take everything there, set it up and then take it away," she explained. "With summer students we can do that now."

Every Tuesday from noon until 6 p.m. a branch assistant will be available with a laptop computer at the community centre to check out items for people, help the public place requests on items, show the library's online catalogue and give out new library cards.

For more information, contact Cumberland Regional Library headquarters at 667-2135.
