Charlestown Project Update

by Christine Schonhart

On Monday, November 26, the Charlestown Branch of the Boston Public Library re-opened after a 5-month repair project. The majority of the work may not seem obvious at first glance, however users will notice that the temperature in the branch is greatly improved since the heating and cooling systems were completely updated. In addition, a new roof and windows were installed which will help with energy efficiency. New window treatments are also adding much needed protection from glare while still allowing a good amount of natural light to fill the space. The early literacy book nook in the children’s space is still a work-in-progress, however the flooring as been installed and furniture should be in place by the end of the year. The Library is happy to welcome everyone back to the branch – stop in and say “hi” if you get a chance!
