2015 Improvements to the Capitol Hill Branch

The Capitol Hill Branch was refurbished in early 2015. It closed Monday, Jan. 12 and reopened Saturday, Feb. 7.


The 11,600-square-foot branch, which opened in May 2003, was the fourth branch to open under the "Libraries for All" building program to improve the Library system.


After 11 years of use, the carpeting throughout the branch and the flooring on the stairs needed to be replaced.


While the branch was closed, the Library also relocated some desks and shelves to increase efficiency and flexibility and make the entry more comfortable. The quiet study room on the second floor also was repainted and refurnished.
