Construction to Begin at the Library

 

Morrill Public Library will be closed Friday, January 17 through Monday, January 20 for preparations of the library’s upcoming renovation. Additionally, the library is looking for volunteers on these dates to help pack and move boxes, as well as clean and prepare our storage space for larger furniture pieces. We are looking for help from 9am – 5pm each day.

Construction is planned to start on January 21 and will continue for about 7 months total, beginning on the lower level. Although construction will begin on the lower level, the back parking lot and south entrance will continue to be accessible for patrons needing to use the elevator to get to the second floor.

Most of the children’s book collection will be moved to storage while the lower level is being worked on, but a small selection of these books will be kept at the library upstairs and continue to be available for checkout. The library staff encourages patrons to utilize our Inter-Library Loan service to checkout any books unavailable during construction.

At this time, the library will not be able to reserve the meeting room for patron use until further notice. Library staff will be contacting anyone who currently has a reservation to discuss other options. Additionally, the library will not be holding Culinary Quests, Discovery classes, After School is Cool, or Studio Tuesdays during the renovation process. Wednesday Morning Book Club will continue to meet monthly upstairs in the back of the stacks.
