Greece Public Library Grand Reopening
Supervisor John Auberger and the members of the Greece Town Board are excited to announce that the Grand Reopening of the Greece Public Library will take place on Thursday, August 16 at 9:30 a.m. The grand reopening will mark the completion of various renovations and upgrades made to the library over the last few months.
“As one of the most visited libraries in our area, these improvements and renovations were needed so we can continue to provide our residents with the best services and amenities possible,” said Auberger.
As a result of increased popularity in library programs and events, approximately 3,000 square feet of space was re-purposed to create two 1,500 square foot program rooms, which can be converted in to one large program room when necessary. These rooms will allow for increased participation in programs, events and story times with occupancy of 200 +/- people.
These exciting renovations were made using a combination of grant monies and town funds. Additional renovations include – converting the old program room and a portion of the book stack for various purposes, creating quiet study pods throughout the stack area, creating a new room for the Friends of the Greece Public Library Secondhand Prose Bookstore and relocating the teen area to the west of the new program room.
