The Howland Public Library, 313 Main Street, is open after being closed for renovations. Our project reconfigured library service areas, creating a dedicated children's room and new program/craft room; a computer center with new computers and improved wireless access; a small community meeting room; and a pleasant reading area. The installation of wall shelves gives our collection room to grow. Sight-lines have been improved throughout the library. Energy-efficient lighting gives HPL a brighter look and will save money, too. And use of available natural light has been improved. Green products were used whenever possible.
The HPL Reconfiguration Project was funded with a bequest, grants, and donations matched by a $51,000 NYS Library Construction Grant.
