The renovations of Sebastopol's small but popular library have been completed, at a cost of $649,000, and it has reopened.
"We have natural light with energy-saving lights, there are more computers for the public and the room appears more spacious," said librarian Sue Struthers.
The work took almost five months and includes new shelving, rugs, better access for the disabled and a section for teen-agers.
The library is among Sonoma County's smallest, at 10,000 square feet, but is one of the more heavily used, with 1,000 to 1,300 visitors a day.
Struthers said there will be a celebration of the opening at 11 a.m. Saturday, with a ribbon-cutting, speeches and refreshments.
