Main Branch of Roanoke Public Library Closed Until Further Notice

Roanoke, VA- The Roanoke Public Library Main Branch will be closed until further notice because of a construction mishap.

While crews were doing excavation work on nearby Bullitt Avenue, they accidentally hit an electrical line that affects the library. Crews have to disconnect power to the library in order to fix the line.

The city says the work will be done as quickly as possible. In the meantime, Thursday night's event, "The History of Moonshine in the Appalachians," will now be held at the Jackson Park Branch Library.
