Beginning at 6 p.m. Friday, February 18, and continuing through Monday, February 21, all Library buildings will be closed. Because of the installation of a new telephone switch, there will be no operational telephones in any of the Library's buildings on Capitol Hill. For safety reasons, therefore, the Library has decided to close all of its facilities.

The films that had been scheduled in the Mary Pickford Theater for February 18 at 7 p.m., "Red and Blue," "The White Bus" and "The Ride of the Valkyrie," have been canceled.

Monday, February 21, is a federal holiday. The Library will reopen to the public at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday, February 22.
