Library Building Project Updates
January 21, 2020
A new year means we are getting closer to a newly renovated library! Behind the scenes work has begun. A complete survey of the property was completed, along with test borings and geotechnical services to prepare for the planned site alterations. Staff are busy inside the building too – assessing collections to make sure our materials are in good shape, up-to-date, and to also begin the process of identifying what can go into storage when physical construction begins, and what we need on hand for our patron’s ease of access to materials. We are identifying sites where we can offer programs down the road, so there is as little disruption to library services as possible.
Design development and building plans are being worked on with our architects and construction management, in order to finalize them and send plans to the NYS Department of Education for approval. SED approval takes many months, which is why you won’t see many physical changes to the existing site for most of this year.
Our Director, Lisa Kropp, is always available to talk with patrons about the building project and library services. She can be reached at email@example.com or by calling 631-957-7759.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. When will work begin?
