Current Work & Library Updates

Sylvan Way Refresh
Estimated construction dates: May 5-July 27; an additional 2-day closure dates to be determined

On May 5, we begin some long-awaited critical updates to our Sylvan Way branch, including:

  • Installation of new heating, ventilation and air conditioning automation controls for improved efficiency
  • Replacing the aged, leaking roof with a PVC style roofing system
  • Replacing skylights
  • Replacing the main electrical switchgear

We look forward to fully serving our community for the duration of this construction with only one short two-day closure anticipated for late summer or early fall.

 

Manchester Refresh
Estimated construction dates: April 4-June 19

Thanks to the efforts of the Friends of the Manchester Library, we're in the process of expanding the Manchester branch. Starting April 4, we'll be making renovations to the space, including:

  • More reading space for adults
  • Expanded areas for kids and teens
  • An enlarged meeting space
  • Updated shelving, paint and carpet

During the closure, the book drop will remain open and the seed library will still be accessible at the front of the building.
