After a seven-month remodeling closure, Summit County Library’s Frisco location is ready to reopen to the public. An open house is scheduled for 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, March 26, at the main branch, 37 Peak One Drive, Frisco. The event will feature entertainment for children as well as live music.

According to a news release, the remodel has renovated the circulation desk experience with self-checkout machines and new radio frequency identification tags. The library has revamped seating areas in spaces for teens and children in addition to studying and meeting rooms.

There are other modernized aspects of the remodel to boost technology access, and there is a new bookstore-like feel for the Friends of the Library organization.

Despite supply chain issues and the pandemic, the release notes that the timeline for the reopening has remained on target. It is not the only project the library has been working on. Renovations for Silverthorne’s north branch are expected to start later this summer.

The remodels are a part of a $4.5-million building project. Summit County government is providing $2.7 million, Strong Futures funds are helping with another $900,000, and the Summit County Library Foundation is fundraising an additional $1 million.
