Madison Public Library’s Pinney Library located at 204 Cottage Grove Road will close to the public on Friday, Nov. 30 at 9 p.m.

The library will then reopen at a temporary space at 209 Cottage Grove Road sometime in January 2019. The library will be at the temporary location while the new Pinney Library is being built.

“Multiple project delays meant that we reached the end of our lease at our current Pinney Library before the new Pinney Library was completed, leaving a significant service gap between having to vacant the current site and relocating to the new library.” said Library Director Greg Mickells. “Using the space at 209 Cottage Grove Road during that gap will help diminish the impact on the neighborhood, and allow the library to continue to provide much-needed library service in the meantime.”Madison’s Pinney Library to close Nov. 30, will temporarily relocate

The future Pinney Library will be located in Ruedebusch Development & Construction’s Royster Corners mixed use development located at the intersection of Cottage Grove Road and Dempsey Road in a 20,000 square-foot space..

The new Pinney Library will feature expanded seating and meeting spaces, improved spaces for children and teens, including a Play Lab space; an outdoor space for events and programs; updated technology; a quiet reading area; and a drive-through book drop. It is expected to open in the spring of 2020.
