CCGS Is On The Move!

The library will be moving in the month of November, as our lease at our current location is up November 30. The latest projection is that the library will close after the last Fall class ends on November 5th and we don't have a set date as to when the new library will open. Our new location is at 3205 NE 52nd Street, between St. Johns and St. James. Our new location is right across the street from Hi-School Pharmacy. Be sure to check the web site, our Facebook page and our Library Blog for updates on this project.
