According to Gambit, two New Orleans libraries will be temporarily closed by mid-October.
The Mid-City branch will be relocating to the 1963 Automobile Life Insurance building located on 4140 Canal Street. The library was originally located in the American Can Company building on Orleans Avenue. The new location is set to open by the end of November.
The New Orleans Historic District Landmarks Commission deemed 4140 Canal St. a historic building in 2010.
The new building will be two stories high and have 9,259 square feet of space.
Additionally, Gambit reports that the Nix Library branch, located on N. Carrolton Avenue, will be closed for renovations until early 2017. The library will undergo painting, plumbing, electrical, and other maintenance work.
