Flood Update! Disaster Mediation Begins Monday September 25

Posted on

ServPro will be on site on Monday September 25 through Friday September 29 to begin removing flooring, wall, and millwork damaged by water during the flood August 18. We will need to close areas of the building for this work to be completed. The Children’s Room will close to pack, store and relocate items on Thursday September 21, and remain closed for the duration of the work, with a reopening date to be determined.

Affected areas include the Children’s Room, Children’s Program Room, Children’s Room Storage Closet, Children’s Workroom, Community Room, A/V Storage Closet, and Kitchen.

There is likely to be significant noise and disruption due to this demolition work, all week, between 10am and 4pm.  Visitors should manage expectations accordingly. Please obey all staff directives and signage during this reconstruction period.

The Community Room continues to be unavailable and we are not taking any new bookings until the reconstruction project is completed.

A selection of Children’s Materials will be available in the Friends Corner (Thank you to our Friends for temporarily giving up this space!) until the Community Room work is completed. Puzzles, toys, crafts and activities will not be available. All Children’s Programming is suspended through October. Unfortunately, this means the Library will need to be a an errand, not a destination, and visitors should manage expectations accordingly.

We apologize for the inconvenience, and hope to complete this restoration work quickly! Thank you for your patience and patronage.
