Posted: 7:13 PM EDT Aug 22, 2013

The main branch of the Reading Public Library is closed for about three months for renovations.

Workers are packing items that will be moved to a temporary library at 645 Penn St. in center city. That location will have highly circulated materials and computers.

The temporary library will open Sept. 3.

The main library will get new paint, new carpet and other repairs.
