The Bothell Regional Library will close Monday while the building gets a face-lift and new equipment.


Assistant managing librarian Rob Bowman said the library will trade in dull-colored carpets and paint for something more lively and inviting. Other improvements will be the addition of a handful of new computers, more self-checkout centers and better lighting.


During the closure, scheduled through Sept. 5, the meeting room will be open on a limited schedule for people to pick up books on hold. Those hours will be Mondays-Thursdays, noon-7 p.m.; Fridays, noon- 6 p.m.; Saturdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; and Sundays, 1-5 p.m.


The library, at 18215 98th Ave. N.E., also will be closed Labor Day. Call 425-486-7811 for more information.

Farmers market looks for volunteers


The Friends of the Woodinville Farmers Market is looking for volunteers to help plan the future of about 21 acres the group purchased earlier this year.


The land, just south of Woodinville off 171st Street Northeast, was purchased as a new location for the farmers market as well as space for new agricultural projects.


The nonprofit group is hoping volunteers can join committees and add input about the evolution of some of the property, including designing a trail system and general landscaping.
