While the home location was being remodeled, the library was operating out of Farmington City Hall. Improvements to the home location include 3,500 square feet of new library space, new study rooms, a small group meeting room, a larger children's section with farm-themed play area, an increase of public computers with Internet capability, a one-stop service desk, a new automated book drop, a 12-laptop computer lab available for Library programs, and self-service checkout systems. The automated book drop will be working as the Library relocates, and patrons are asked to use it to drop their books at the 508 Third St. location.

- 5:30–7:30 p.m. Aug. 26 at Gateway Academy Open House, 510 Walnut St.
