After several months of construction work, Brighton Memorial Library recently invited the public to celebrate its redesign. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held, refreshments were served and tours of the renovated facility were available.
The event was attended by Executive Director Jennifer Ries-Taggart; Library Board President Linda Rapkin; Library Board members Kathy Miller and Ruth Scott; Library Board President Kris Lamendola; New York State Assembly Majority Leader Joe Morelle; New York State Sen. Joe Robach; Town of Brighton Supervisor Bill Moehle; Town Council members Louise Novros, Jason DiPonzio and Jim Vogel; Brighton Town Court Judge Karen Morris; library staff; and members of the community.
BML was recognized for its vital role in the community and for accomplishing the renovation without cost to taxpayers.
The redesign provides a bright, fresh design; improved traffic flow; an enclosed Quiet Room; a new, 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.
In celebration of the new design, BML is decreasing its holds fees from $1 to 50 cents until Jan. 31, 2017.
