Main Entrance Has Re-Opened!
We are happy to report that our main entrance - including our handicap ramp - has re-opened. Spring and early summer rains did contribute to some delay in the construction process and we appreciate your patience.
A number of improvements will make entry into the library safer and easier. These include:
-New pavers offering smoother and safer sidewalks
-More efficient lighting
-Sturdier handrails on steps and ramp
-More handicap parking spaces with improved sidewalk access
-More secure and efficient sliding front doors
As our Building Repair Project continues in the coming months, you will see landscaping improvements, safety directional painting on steps and parking lot, and the installation of secure limestone caps in the entrance areas.
