Library Renovation Project

Construction continues on the Library/Annex renovation project.  In addition to the new construction connecting the two buildings, interior renovations are underway.  Some work is visible from outside, such as the temporary windows that are in place in Heberton Hall; the original windows have been removed for restoration.  The historic windows will be reinstalled before completion of the project. We have installed a slideshow of construction photos in our lobby.  

The Library/Annex renovation project which will transform Keene Public Library into a model library for the twenty-first century: a center of learning, creativity, collaboration, and community.  During the project the Annex will be renovated, some improvements to the existing library building will be made, and a connector will be built to join the two buildings.
