The Port Orange Library will be closed
Red-shouldered hawks are nesting in trees in front of the Port Orange Library. They will be there for approximately 3 weeks.
Patrons should use an open umbrella over their heads while moving from their car to the library entrance because the hawks will swoop and attack to protect the nest.
