Twin Lakes library rehab nearing completion, says village president

The renovation of the Twin Lakes branch of the Community Library is proceeding well, Twin Lakes village President Howard Skinner reported to the Village Board Monday night.

Skinner said he visited the site Monday and found much of the work completed or nearly so.

The library may be able to begin moving material and furnishings back into the  library by the end of the week, Skinner estimated.

“I went down there today,” Skinner said. “I’m very pleased with what I see. It should be very functional.”

The project started on Sept. 18, with the library closing at that time.

The library issued a statement Dec. 1 saying that since the project is still under way, patrons who checked materials out from the Library in Twin Lakes before it closed for remodeling will have an extended due date of Jan. 31. All materials may still be returned sooner to the book drop at Twin Lakes or to the other Community Library locations in Salem or Silver Lake.

The old Twin Lakes space was approximately 3,800 square feet and is being expanded to approximately 6,300 square feet.  The additional room will provide more public access computers, programs, shelves for materials and general seating areas, library officials say.

The expansion is occurring in the same building in space that used to be occupied by other units or businesses.
