J. L. Robertson Branch Scheduled to Reopen February 15th

(Pineville, LA) The Rapides Parish Library’s J. L. Robertson Branch, located at 809 Tioga High School Road is expected to reopen to serve area customers on Monday, February 15, 2016 at 9:00am. This will be a “soft” opening with an anticipated grand reopening planned for some time in early March.  The branch resumes regular hours of operation of Monday through Saturday 9:00am to 6:00pm. 

The Robertson Branch building, constructed in 1982, has doubled its square footage from 3,200 to 6,400. The expanded areas include a much-needed enlarged children’s area, which includes two study rooms that provide excellent distraction-free spaces for students and tutors or small study groups. The expansion allows more seating in the reading areas; more space for books and more communal space in book areas; additional computer stations; a meeting room; restroom improvements; enhanced office space and a convenient drive-through area. The parking lot increased in size from 21 spaces to 44 parking spaces and has more handicapped accessible spaces.
