Nichols Library is getting a new look for the first time in 30 years.
The nearly $2 million project started back in April and is continuing into the fall with updates to the flooring, main staircase and the addition of outlets throughout the building.
To allow for flooring to be ripped out and new furniture to be put in, the library will be closed August 10th and 11th in addition to a few other days before the project is scheduled to be complete at the end of September.
After 30 years, the renovations are much needed to the space.
“We always liken it to an airport, the kind of usage we get, it’s a lot of heavy usage. The carpeting has been giving out and the furniture has been all-original and it shows the ware. So it was time to be updated and this is a nice community and they deserve a fresh library,” said Executive Director of Nichols Library, Julie Rothenfluh.
The Jefferson Street entrance will also be renovated with a new light and more energy efficient doors.
