Huntington Library Aims

For Thursday Re-Opening

The Huntington Memorial Library is aiming to re-open this Thursday, Feb. 21, after being closed for renovations. Above, Melanie Castine, library clerk, moves newspapers through the main room, which will remain closed until construction is completed, as will the children’s reading room. However, as library clerk Kyle Melligan, right, demonstrates, carts of picture books will be made available throughout the library on a rotating basis for check-out and reading. Though construction is ongoing in the main room, the mystery reading room and the front desk will be accessible when the library re-opens. (Ian Austin/AllOTSEGO.com)

The Chestnut Street library will be closed for three weeks starting Tuesday, Jan. 22 for considerable remodeling and reconstruction, including asbestos abatement, insulation upgrades and new furniture.

“It will get worse before it gets better,” she said. “but we think people will really like the results.”

The main affected area consists of the first floor entry or “computer” room and the two stories above it, which was built in 1959.
