Library improvements ‘just in time’


The Levi Coe Library is undergoing a number of improvements this year, including new carpet, paint, and a repaved parking lot.

“They just painted new lines on the asphalt in the main parking lot last weekend,” Ralph Sayward, president of the Levi Coe Library Board, said.

The new carpet and paint in the children’s story room comes “Just in time for our children’s summer reading program,” according to Adult Services Librarian Susan Mizla.

Mizla said the library staff is very excited for the improvements.

Sayward said a contractor had also been hired to paint the wood trim at the library, though much of the exterior is brownstone.

“We’re getting a lot of good feedback,” Sayward said, “the repaving of the parking lot was way overdue, and the carpet has definitely seen better years.”

The main parking lot at the bottom of the hill has been paved, and the upper level will be repaved before summer is over, according to Sayward.
