HENDERSON The Henderson Free Library will host an open house to celebrate renovations made to the buildings entryway, circulation and work areas from 4 to 7 p.m. April 24. Free to the public, the event will be hosted by the librarys staff and board of trustees.
Renovations were made possible by a $10,000 grant from the Northern New York Community Foundation, along with fundraising efforts by staff and trustees to raise an additional $5,000. Another grant secured by state Sen. Patricia A. Ritchie, R-Heuvelton, went to new furniture for the librarys reading corner.
The librarys circulation desk has new shelving units designed and built by Black River Furnishings, Castorland. New works of fiction and nonfiction are displayed on a freestanding shelf, while a wall-mounted unit holds the circulating periodical collection.
