Following an improvement project that updated library roofing.


The Bartram Trail Branch Library, part of the St. Johns County Public Library System, is scheduled to reopen on Wednesday, April 14, 2021, after the completion of a roof replacement project.

The 14,980 square foot library, which opened in 1997, underwent a project to replace the roof, which was over 20 years old.

In preparation for the reopening, the annex located at 725 Flora Branch Blvd., St. Johns, FL 32259 will close permanently at 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 10.  The bookdrop located at the Bartram Trail Branch Library is now open for immediate use.

Patrons are advised that items will not be due during the transition to reopening, and no fines will accrue during this time.

Maribeth Beck, Bartram Trail Branch Manager, says, “Our library staff are thrilled to welcome back our library family earlier than expected. We missed you, and can’t wait to see you at the branch! Don’t hesitate to drop in for a hello or to browse our shelves. We are here to help!”
