EAST LANSING, Mich. — City of East Lansing officials have been closely monitoring the winter weather warning and have proactively made the decision to close the East Lansing Hannah Community Center and East Lansing Public Library beginning today at 5 p.m. and continuing through Saturday, Jan. 13.

The East Lansing Hannah Community Center (ELHCC), 819 Abbot Road and the East Lansing Public Library (ELPL), 950 Abbot Road will close at 5 p.m. today (Friday, Jan. 12) and remain closed through the day on Saturday, Jan. 13. The ELHCC will reopen on Sunday, Jan. 13 at noon and the ELPL will reopen at 1 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 13.

City officials encourage community members to stay off the roads to the greatest extent possible. This will allow crews from the Department of Public Works (DPW) to focus their resources on priority routes.

“Thank you to our DPW crews and first responders for the long hours they are prepared to put in to ensure the safety of the community,” said East Lansing City Manager Robert Belleman. “We are grateful to them for their hard work.”
