UNION GAP, WA -- Union Gap's City Council is taking steps to bring back the Yakima Valley Library System.

Last year, the city closed its only library, shutting the doors after more than 60-years of operation. The city council will ask residents Monday night about their thoughts on a new contract. 

The director of the library system says they are ready to come back to Union Gap.

"We were very excited," Kim Hixson, Director of the Yakima Valley Library System said. "We believe that Union Gap is a great place to offer library services and if they can work things out to bring us back that would be great."

The details of a new contract are still being worked out. The old library closed when city officials thought City Hall was infested with mold.
