Oak Hill library closing for renovations

Thursday, July 26, 2018 by Katy McElroy

The Hampton Branch library at Oak Hill will be closing soon for a full renovation. The Austin Public Library’s press release shared that the branch will close at 6 p.m. on Aug. 24 and remain closed for approximately nine months. The library building and the book drop will be closed during the renovation period. The upgrades are part of the 2012 bond program and include a new roof, new floor, updated electrical and plumbing, new furniture, repainting of the interior, and more. Bookmobile services will be available nearby at the Dick Nichols District Park, 8011 Beckett Road. APL suggests the Manchaca Road, Pleasant Hill, Southeast and Twin Oaks branches as alternatives for full library services.
