Blake Memorial Library is undergoing a renovation project after many years of planning by a group of hardworking, dedicated volunteers. The main focus of the renovation will be to increase the accessibility of the library by adding an elevator, updating the staircase, and installing a second bathroom downstairs. The project will also include creating a new circulation desk and office for the staff, painting, installing new carpet, replacing windows, and updating light fixtures.
The library will be closed from December 24th to March 21st.
While we are closed for renovations, we will be offering a limited service “mini-library” at the East Corinth Congregational Church across the street, starting Thursday, Jan 2nd. The hours are Wednesday from 3-6 pm and Thursday from 9 am to Noon. We will have two laptops and a printer/copier for use. We will also have a book cart of new titles for all ages available to checkout. Books can be returned at this location during open hours on Wednesday and Thursday. Inter-Library Loan will not be available during this time. Story Hour will continue on Thursdays at 10 am (starting on Thursday, January 9th) at the church, thanks to our incredible volunteers, Wendy and Julia.
A big thank you to the church for allowing us to use their space.
We are also arranging with the contractor to keep the WIFI going so it can be accessed in the parking lot while we are closed. It may need to be temporarily shut off from time to time while electrical work is done, but it should be available for most of the renovation.
