Another library reopens

The Illinois Valley Branch Library, 209 W. Palmer in Cave Junction, will reopen its doors to the public next week.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 5, where the new branch manager Noretta Jacobson will also be introduced. A reception with refreshments will follow, and children will be invited to create their own bookmark and choose from a variety of free books. The library will be open until 4 p.m.

The library's regular hours will be from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Wednesdays and Fridays and noon to 4 p.m. on Saturdays.

All libraries in Josephine County closed on May 17, 2007. In September 2007, community members formed Josephine Community Libraries, Inc., a nongovernmental, nonprofit organization dedicated to reopening and operating the libraries in Josephine County. The main branch of the library opened in December 2008.
