AVON — Monday night the Avon Free Library held a ribbon cutting ceremony for their grand re-opening.
The library has been closed since June 15th in order to renovate the interior of the building and add a new circulation desk, children’s area, and study room.
The renovations began in January and were completed last week.
“We’re excited to get back to the business of providing our community with connectivity, education, and books,” said Library Director, Rebecca Budinger-Mulhearn.
Annie Chiwiecko, community representative for state Sen. Patrick Gallivan spoke on his behalf, giving thanks to to the volunteers, donors and to advocate for the senator’s support of the library in donating $100,000 to the project.
Assemblyman Joseph Errigo in a citation said that the Free Library of Avon is an “integral part of the community,” and recognized it as the oldest library in Livingston County.
The library has not met its fundraising goal for the project yet and is still asking people for more donations, however, the renovations are complete with slight changes happening in the future.
The library will begin its regularly scheduled hours Tuesday.
