The Central Square Branch Library closes Nov. 26 through Dec. 20 for new furniture to be installed in the ground floor, children’s room, literacy center and Lewis Room.

The following services will be suspended until Dec. 21:

Contactless holds pickup: The last day to pick up holds before the project begins will be Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. All holds at the branch will be inaccessible during the project but will be available for pickup when services resume. (Materials that were on the way to the branch will be made available to patrons once services resume.) Closed days will not count against patrons’ time to pick up items.

Library returns: No returns will be accepted at the branch during the project. Patrons may keep borrowed items until the branch resumes service. No overdue fines will be assessed. Other Cambridge Public Library locations will continue to accept returns during their advertised pickup and return hours.

Phone service: There will be no phone service at the branch during renovations. Patrons in need of assistance should call the Main Library at (617) 349-4040.

Due to the public health emergency, the Central Square Branch building will remain closed to the public until further notice after other services resume.
