Groundbreaking ceremony held for New Fairfield Free Public Library renovations

A ceremonial groundbreaking has been held for the renovation to the New Fairfield Free Public Library.  A massive renovation is planned in New Fairfield to bring the Library into compliance with the American Disabilities Act.  A competitive state library grant will help pay for the project, which includes improved walkways and construction of an elevator.  There will also be energy-efficiency improvements for the building that hasn’t seen renovations for 30 years. 

 

The groundbreaking ceremony was held on Friday. 

 

 

State Representative Richard Smith says the library provides important educational services to the community and he hopes the renovations will attract new visitors, noting that the improvements will assist the people who already visit regularly. 

 

The library will remain open during the renovation, which is expected to last a few months, with entry available only through the front doors.  The Children's Library is temporarily located in the upper level community room.
