Manchester completes $275K library renovations

MANCHESTER — The Manchester Public Library children’s room has completed renovations; adding new furniture, carpeting and more open floor space.

“The interior was completely gutted and redone,” town library Director Dorothy Sieradzki said Wednesday.

She said the project was funded through a combination of private fund-raising and Board of Trustee funds, at an overall cost of some $275,000.

The reorganization and renovations of the facility provided much needed floor space, as the children’s non-fiction of the library was moved into the reference section.

The previous furniture was from 1965 and more new furniture is expected to arrive in the coming weeks, Sieradzki said.

The renovations began in August of last year and did have some hiccups, she said, but a majority of the work was done by the end of February.

A tentative ribbon cutting ceremony is set for April 6 at 2 p.m. at the library.
