'Our first stage of construction begins on Monday April 6! This part of the project includes remodeling the public restrooms, which means there will be no access to restrooms for the next several weeks. 

We will keep you updated on when they become available again!'                                        

Due to library construction, the Friendswood Public Library will be open for limited service beginning May 16 through May 27, and will reopen to full service and regular hours after Memorial Day on Tuesday, May 31. 

From May 16 to May 27, the library will open the Community Room so that patrons can return items, pick up item requests, and for limited internet services.  The Community Room will be open during regular library hours but will close on Saturday, May 21 and Saturday, May 28.  Staff will be available to retrieve item requests, handle library accounts, provide reference service, and provide limited internet services. The library's drive-through book drop will remain open.
