Talk Like a Pirate Day, Sept. 19th
What is going on in front of the library?
This week you will find building repairs taking place from up above to down below by Library and City of Plymouth contractors.
Scaffolding went up near the bike racks for our boiler replacement project. This scaffolding was built to get equipment and manpower up to the roof to install an additional chimney flue. The scaffolding will be up for a month and construction work will start in this area on Monday Work will be taking place behind the fencing for the next month but the bike racks are expected to remain accessible. Once the scaffolding is removed this area will be beautifully landscaped by Serene Surroundings.
The flat curbs in the parking lot in front of the library are being replaced by the City of Plymouth. As a result there is a temporary dead end for automobile traffic in front of the library. This area is expected to be opened to cars early next week. Rest assured you can still walk in this area and enter the library via our main parking lot entrance.
And in between:
Snow fencing has been installed around the planters near our parking lot entrance to give our tender new plants a healthy start on life. Additional work will be taking place around the entrance in early October as we move forward to address safety concerns in this heavy foot traffic area. Please take care when driving, walking and biking but find a way to come to the library!
