Port Chester Library Open But Still Renovating

Heather Bigby took her four-year-old daughter Hailey to the Port Chester-Rye Brook Public Library for the first time only to find it was closed for renovations. A week later on Monday, the doors were open again."I was hoping to sign her (Hailey) up for a summer reading program," said Bigby. "But they won't have anything until September."

The library began renovating in mid-January with a few interruptions in service. It was recently closed from June 6 to June 12 for asbestos abatement. Ongoing projects include expanding the children's room, installing an elevator and adding two meeting rooms.

As a result of the construction, children's programs have been suspended until September when the renovations are expected to be completed.

Even though there were no programs for Hailey, there was still a full collection of books to choose from. Hailey picked out a book called Goldilicious and her mother picked one titled Grandma Calls Me Beautiful .

"At least we were able to get these," Bigby said.
