Several construction delays have led to delaying the library reopening, according to Library Director Carolann MacMaster. Some problems with carpeting, in particular the Children’s Room carpet not arriving on schedule, have pushed back the renovation timetable.
“We’re probably looking at November 14 or 15” said MacMaster by phone today. “As for the regular library activities, most likely those will restart after Thanksgiving.”
While the delays can be frustrating, the final product is what is important. In the end, we will have a more aesthetic, user-friendly, and technologically improved library. It should be well worth the wait.
