Building Repair Update


Gunn Memorial Library Remediation and Remodel: Update

On February 5th, we last communicated to the community that the Gunn Library experienced a frozen pipe break that caused extensive water damage in the Adult and Children’s Libraries.

Since that time the Adult and Children’s libraries have been opened with modified services in the upstairs Wykeham Room (the original part of the Library). We have enjoyed seeing many of you!

During these last weeks we have been busy removing our collections to a suitable environmentally controlled facility and making plans for a reimagined Adult and Children’s Library.

We have begun working to repair the damage as we simultaneously place our orders for new fixtures and furnishings.

We appreciate your inputs through our community survey last month. Those comments along with our staff visits to recently renovated libraries in our region have helped inform us as we update our spaces while preserving the warmth and history of our facility.

We anticipate completion in the Fall and will keep the community updated.

Please feel free to reach out to any of our staff members or Trustees with your comments or questions.
