The Whitman Public Library is pleased to announce that a construction project which will separate the Youth Services area of the library from the Adult Services area will begin on March 27th. Construction is expected to continue through March 29th, with the library reopening to the public on March 31st.
It has long been a request from patrons of all ages for separate spaces in the library for children and adults. The current open floor plan provides little sound proofing, as noise from our younger patrons carries easily throughout the building. In response to our patron’s needs for quiet work and study space we are excited to have this opportunity to improve the library.
In order to complete the construction the library will be closed Thursday, March 27th, through Saturday, March 29th. We will reopen on Monday, March 31st at 10am. During this time our patrons are encouraged to visit neighboring libraries, such as Abington and Hanson. During the period of time when we are closed, holds will not be available. For more information please call us at 781-447-7613. We thank you in advance for your patience while we work to make your library a more functional space for all patrons.
