Pawling Library Spruces Up

By Pawling Library
The Pawling Library is in sprucing up mode as the library endeavors to refresh interior spaces with an overdue paint job. During the month of January, George Apap’s crew will be applying a new coat of paint to the walls and book shelves. Volunteers and staff have been removing books and replacing them onto freshly painted and dried shelves, and will continue this process until every interior corner has been addressed.  Most recently, with funds received through grants, the Library has created a modern, sound dampening, teen-friendly space in a section of the Donaldson Wing, and has replaced the roofing on both the main library building and the Library Annex. Along with new shingles, repair work was conducted on some underlying structural elements such as the sheathing and some rafters on the main library building and replacement of damaged facia on the Annex.
Once again, the Board of Trustees and Library Director, Brian Avery, apologize for any inconvenience to patrons that might occur at this time and look forward to the completion of this current facilities improvement project.
