Aptos Branch Closure

Aptos Branch Closure

At 5pm on Friday, June 11th the Aptos Branch Library concludes public service in the current 46 year old building. Opening its doors in 1975, this cherished branch library has served the community with outstanding collections, programs, and helpful staff. Now we say goodbye to this long serving facility and prepare for the construction of a new modern library funded by Measure S funds passed by voters in 2016.

This comprehensive project includes plans to raze the current structure and begin construction in Summer 2021 with Anderson Brule Architects and Bogard Construction, see Latest Images. SCPL will provide advance publicity for the date and time of the razing of the Aptos Library and is making plans to film the razing.

The Aptos Friends of the Santa Cruz Public Libraries will be selling library furniture and hosting a Book Sale on July 24th & 25th. This weekend event will also serve as an opportunity to say goodbye to the current Aptos branch.

The Capitola and La Selva Beach Branch libraries will serve Aptos library patrons during construction. The New Aptos branch is expected to open at the end of 2022. The Aptos Library staff will greatly miss the Aptos Library community and look forward to serving you again in the Aptos library of the future!
