ST. CLOUD -- Almost three months after a fire closed down the St. Cloud Library, services will be fully operational on Thursday.

Great River Regional Library Spokeswoman Julie Henne says the library will resume operating with its usual schedule starting at 10:00 a.m.

Both levels of the building will be open, along with public computers and study rooms. All programming will resume this week as well.

Henne says extended hours at the Waite Park public library will continue through Friday, after which the Waite Park location will return to normal schedule.

The library has been closed since an arson fire August 17th caused structural damage and spread smoke and soot particles throughout the building.

The clean-up cost is estimated at nearly $1,000,000.
