A new elevator was installed, automatic doors are being added to the entry way and there is new wiring for computers and phones. Among the ADA compliant work being done is hallway widening and work in the bathrooms. The building is also being made more energy efficient.
About half of the $1.1 million dollar project was paid for through state grant money, the town contributed $300,000 and the library raised the balance. Work is expected to be finished later this month.
