Welcome to the "New" L. H. Bluford Branch

Dear Community,

It's almost time to welcome you back to the newly renovated Lucile H. Bluford Branch Library. It has been several months since the closure of the branch. You have been anxiously awaiting the day when we will re-open, and I believe you will be as excited about returning as my staff and I are about having you back.

I hope that you will be very, very pleased when you enter the front doors on grand opening day, especially when you see the beautiful hues, new computers for all age groups, gaming area for the teens, and new services and future programs for your convenience and enjoyment.

Come and join us on the morning of March 6, 2010 for a celebration of the rebirth and re-opening of the newly renovated Lucile H. Bluford Library. Together let's move forward and make this branch a successful community resource that provides a safe, comfortable, and stimulating environment for everyone.

Oliver Clark, Branch Manager
