A building renovation project is slated to begin at Perry Public Library on Monday, July 27. The scheduled construction includes a new East entrance, all new floor coverings, renovation of existing restrooms, the addition of a family bathroom, a new circulation desk and new water fountain with touch-free bottle-filling station.

The project has necessitated library staff to temporarily relocate their office space to the Carnegie Library Museum. Completion of the renovation is expected in early October, and library services will continue from the temporary home base at the Carnegie building until the move back into the library takes place.

Staff will have daily access to library materials during construction breaks, so no disruption of service is expected during the project. Library materials may be returned to bins that will relocate to the East side of the Carnegie Library Museum, on Second Street, during open hours, and curbside services will continue from that location, as well.

Appointments may still be made for 45-minute computer sessions, one patron at a time, at the Carnegie Library Museum, although the building remains closed. For more information, call the library: 515-465-3569.
