The Bryan Main Library Adult Department will be undergoing a full remodel starting August 07. The remodel is expected to last through September 04, weather permitting. Due to how much construction will be taking place, the Main Library will be closed during this time, and is expected to reopen on Tuesday, September 05. Throughout the renovation process, the Bryan Main Library Local History Center will act as the hub for all library activities, check-ins/check outs, and patron services. The Local History Center will be open its normal hours, Monday and Tuesday: 10:00 am-8:00 pm, Wednesday and Thursday, 10:00 am-6:00 pm, as well as being open on Fridays from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm while the Main building is under construction. All other WCPL locations, with branches in Edgerton, Edon, Pioneer, Stryker, and West Unity will remain open their normal hours. Williams County Public Library would like to apologize for any inconvenience that comes from the Main building being closed for a period of time, but would also like to thank the Williams County community once again for its continuous support. Without you, the library would not be able to undergo these much needed improvements. The Bryan Main Library is located at 107 East High Street. For more information, please contact Williams County Public Library Director Jeff Yahraus at 419-636-6734 ext. 239
