Day 2

On Day Two they knocked out the walls connecting the bathroom with the closet and entryway. As a result our main entrance will be closed for at least a week. Once the project is finished there will be a very open entrance to the elevator. 

Day 1

Day One of the elevator project saw the demolition of the old bathroom on the main floor.

Before Pictures

The elevator construction began Monday, February 23rd. For comparison we took a few "before" pictures. We can't wait to see what these spaces will look like once the project is completed in late May!

Window Replacement

Help us preserve the historic fa├žade of our timeless library! Our windows have been deteriorating for many years allowing mold to spread through the library collection.

With your donation of $1,000 you will replace one of our fifty rotted-out windows with a new air-tight window that matches the original appearance of the library.

A donation of $8,000 will make you responsible for the preservation of one of our six large, arched windows which give the library its character.

For your gift you will be recognized on a plaque dedicated to window donors. Thank you for helping us restore the beauty and efficiency of our building.

 For more information and a pledge form please visit the library's website here.
