Reed Memorial Library Closed Today Through July 5th For Construction Purposes!

MONDAY JUNE 20 through July 5
The next chapter in the building restoration story is about to begin. The lintel, the steel beam over the front doors on which the marble and granite rest, has heavy rust and rust jacking and does not meet the requirements to support the existing load. Work will begin on Monday and continue through to early July to replace the lintel.
The library will be closed Monday June 20 through Monday July 5. This is when the heavy work is scheduled – removing the granite stones and marble over the doors, replacing the lintel and then putting all the pieces back together. Please avoid the building during this time.
If the weather cooperates and all goes as planned, the Library will reopen on Tuesday July 5, 2022 at 10 am.
