Brooks library open during construction


BRATTLEBORO — The Brooks Memorial Library, 224 Main St., will remain open during its current renovations which include replacing ceiling tiles and upgrading its lighting to LED fixtures.

"We recognize the vital and essential role the library plays in the daily lives of the people of Brattleboro" said Library Director Starr LaTronica, "so we are making every effort to maintain our regular open hours and services, though areas of the building and collection may be inaccessible at various times."

People may check out museum passes, laptops for use with free Wi-Fi, books they have placed on hold and other materials not in the affected areas. Daily newspapers are available to read on site and staff can help navigate online resources. Items may be returned in Children's Room and Teen Room, which are open as usual, or in the big bright blue book drop immediately to the left of the Grove Street entrance to the Municipal Center parking lot.

Currently, the front door is obstructed so the public will need to enter via the second floor entrance from the parking lot, which has two-hour free spaces for library patrons. For more information on the status of the project and the affected areas,
