The Auburn Public Library has reopened for in-person visits after closing last fall for an expansion project to be completed.

The library has added almost 3,000 square feet for additional bookshelves, study rooms and a large meeting room. The roughly $500,000 project was 90-percent funded through a state grant, with the other 10 percent raised locally, according to officials.

The library is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Fridays and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays. The library has been waiving late fees during the completion of the expansion project and is now accepting returns. The library is also replacing lost cards free of charge through end of April.

The library has a new 24-hour walk-up book drop.
