Temporarily Closed for Moving!

It’s moving month!

We are temporarily closed as we pack and move your community library to a new location

We are excited by the new possibilities for new hours, services and programs as we enter our next phase of service to the community as your public library! Thank you for your patience and support.

Due dates for all RJCL items will be extended to the beginning of September. If you wish to return an item, please do so at any nearby library in the OWWL system.

If you would like to volunteer to help pack for the move, please email us.

The Community (Public) Library and the School District

The Red Jacket Community Library has been grateful and proud to share the joint-use facility in the school building, providing public library services to all residents. This symbiotic relationship provided an affordable option for creating a public library, and has served our community fairly well for more than 20 years.

We find that the new agreement offered by the school district will not allow the RJCL to sustainably meet the needs of the community we are chartered to serve. We have reached the difficult decision to move to a new location.

For background information on our decision, see the Community Library Q&A  and our Long Range Plan as well as the 2021 Annual Report to the Community. and the 2022-23 budget approved by voters in May.
