Ross Library getting repairs

LOCK HAVEN – Annie Halenbake Ross Library is “under construction” in the main reading room from now until the end of May.

Thanks to the Clinton County Community Foundation, the library’s main circulation area, young adult area and large-print area will receive new carpeting from Gallagher Carpet One. While the shelves and cabinets are moved, the circulation area is also being painted.

From May 14 to 19, patrons will not have access to the Pennsylvania Room or the reference room. The main reading room will be available, but the computer area will be limited to four computers. Patrons may expect some waiting time to use the computers until the circulation desk can be relocated to its original position.

At the same time as the carpet installation, repairs to the brick porch off the Pennsylvania Room will begin. Also due to a grant from the Clinton County Community Foundation, the porch, which was in disrepair and posed a danger to patrons, will be replaced by JCH Construction beginning May 14.

JCH Construction also will install a new sign in front of the library. The sign was donated by Steve Poorman.

“It is with great appreciation that the board and staff thanks the Clinton County Community Foundation and Steve Poorman for their support,” said Diane Whitaker, library director.

Annie Halenbake Ross Library is a member of the Clinton County United Way and is open 45 hours a week, Monday through Saturday. Call 570-748-3321 for more information.
