You'll See More LPL Events Out in the Community the Next Few Months

by Mark Bialczak | 7 months ago

More LPL programs will be taking place out in the community in February and March.

Library Director Glenna Wisniewski explains that the reason is two-fold.

“Our strategic plan focus is to engage with community partners and bring more programming out into our service area, which extends all the way up to Route 31,” Wisniewski says. “The upcoming renovations have given us an opportunity to extend our reach while fulfilling two of our strategic focuses: connecting the community and re-imagining the library.”

FrontLobbyView2Renovations will start with the main floor bathrooms and lobby. The public bathrooms will become ADA compliant and are part of the Liverpool Central School District’s Phase 4.2 project. The start date is projected as March 18, with a timeline of six weeks for completion. The main room is expected to remain open during this process.

The second stage of renovations will include a facelift of the main room. Bids are expected to open in March and come back in April. Renovation of the Children’s Room is also being considered.

Renovation of the main room will be paid from the LPL’s fund balance, approved by the Board of Trustees.
