Walnut Creek, California – The Ygnacio Valley Library in Walnut Creek has been used as a state-run COVID-19 testing site since August 2020 and will continue to operate as a library starting February 7.
Despite the fact that the pandemic was keeping library users at home, the Contra Costa County Library system chose to go through with a long-awaited parking lot improvement project. It is anticipated that the project will be completed by the time the branch reopens.
A total of two more regular parking spaces, one additional disabled parking space, new curb ramps, and new walkways will be added to the newly renovated lot. The project was sponsored in part by the city of Walnut Creek and in part by Contra Costa County.
On Mondays and Tuesdays, the branch will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; on Wednesdays and Thursdays, it will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and on Fridays and Saturdays, it will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays will be a day of rest for the branch.
