Temporary Webber Park Library closing soon for move to new location

As the new Webber Park Library opening draws near, the temporary location, at 4203 Webber Pkwy., Minneapolis, will close permanently at 5 p.m., Saturday, April 29.

The brand new Webber Park Library, at 4440 Humboldt Ave. N., will open to the public at about 6 p.m., Thursday May 18, after a ribbon cutting and remarks from local officials. The official program is scheduled to start at 5:15 p.m. The library will remain open until 8 p.m. that day. On Saturday, May 20, the library will host a community celebration and special events that will last much of the day, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
