Waynesboro, Pa., library braces for renovations

April 01, 2002|BY STACEY DANZUSO

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The first phase of renovations at Alexander Hamilton Memorial Free Library began last week as the library updates and remodels the first floor.

The first phase includes changing the front desk area to make room for the computers it received from the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, library Director Scott Valentine said.

The Alexander Hamilton Library is one of six county libraries that received four computers and a laser printer from the foundation this spring.

Valentine said the plan is to move the front desk to where the adult fiction collection is located and move those books to other parts of the library.

He said there is no time line for when work will be completed, but the project would move on to finishing the rest of the first floor, then the painting and carpeting of the children's area.

He said the cost of the renovations will be split between savings by the library board and the Friends of the Library.

The work may interfere with the library's hours.

"We probably will have to close for a day because there will be too much commotion with the re-carpeting," Valentine said. "We ask people to be patient."
