The Library is open! Our entrance has changed. Please drive past the old entrance, to find the new entrance and exit to the lot. You cannot walk into the building from the old walkway. Our temporary entrance is in the parking lot, up the ramp on the side of the building.
The physical library building will close in July and August for the parking lot reconstruction and reconfiguration, along with all interior and exterior demolition. This closure prioritizes patron and staff safety while maximizing construction progress and cost savings.
Great progress is being made on exterior and interior demolition and the staging of our temporary quarters for September. Attached is an update by Park East Construction that was presented at a Library Board Meeting.
The building renovation and project is really starting to take shape – on paper! Our architects are finalizing design and engineering plans with staff input, to send to Albany for SED approval. In the meantime, environmental testing, engineering work, and more is continuing behind the scenes.
