- New Albany Library is currently undergoing a $1.9 million renovation
- The library is expected to open mid-April
The New Albany Library, a local staple for the community, is currently undergoing renovations. In January, the library began a $1.9 million renovation that includes a new ceiling, lighting, flooring, windows, HVAC, and furniture. The upgrades also have a new customer-service desk, a larger teen area, and a more extensive Homework Help Center.
The New Albany branch of Columbus Metropolitan Libraries first opened back in 2003. 18 years later, the library is getting some well-due updates. Currently, the library is open for pick-up and drop-off on the side of the building.
Benjamin Reid, the branch manager, spoke about one of the new features added – the study rooms. The study rooms are open to patrons after the library reopens and can be reserved for same-day use. It’s a great way for community members to enjoy the library and have some private space to study.
The library plans to reopen in mid-April, later than the initially scheduled date, due to construction delays. Reid says, “we’re very excited to welcome the community back once we’re open again!”
