Brighton Memorial Library will host a ribbon cutting to celebrate its renovated facility at 1:30 p.m. Oct. 30. Refreshments and tours of the facility will be available.

In celebration of the new design, BML will decrease holds fees from $1 to 50 cents from Oct. 30-Jan. 31.

The redesign includes improved traffic flow; a quiet room; a relocated information center; redesigned computer areas and staff workspace; a self-serve coffee bar; and a full-service document station with wireless print, scan and fax capabilities.

Funding for the project was provided through annual BML capital campaign donations. The library is also in the process of securing a $100,000 grant, sponsored by Sen. Joseph Robach.

“We are very proud to have funded this project without borrowing money or raising taxes,” said Jennifer Ries-Taggart, executive director. “The level of support we receive from the community is gratifying, and evidence of how pleased our patrons are with the services we provide.”
