The entrance foyer renovation project is back on track at Brighton Memorial Library, 2300 Elmwood Ave.
Construction crews started renovating the foyer in January, but put the project on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic and a delay in acquiring materials. The team hopes to finish the project by mid-September.
The library’s front entrance is closed because of construction. Patrons can enter through the Learning Center, located to the right of the main entrance. Those with disabilities will have access to the lift in the LC.
Curbside pickup also was relocated to the LC. To order items, call (585) 784-5300 during open hours from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Mondays-Fridays or fill out a request form anytime at brightonlibrary.org.
A limited number of computers in the adult, teen and children’s areas are available for use. Due to occupancy limitations set by the state and town of Brighton, the library is restricting the number of available computers. Computer use is limited to one hour per visit, per day. Sanitized keyboards will be signed out at the Information Desk.
An inside book drop is available inside the LC. The outdoor book drop remains open for returns. All items are quarantined for three days before removing them from library cards and are backdated to avoid overdue fees. The library is not accepting book donations.
Patrons must wear a mask, fill out a health screening form and submit to a temperature check before entering the library.
Copier, scanner, fax machine and coffee services are not available. Patrons can print from their phones and library computers, and pick up their items at the Circulation Desk.
The Discovery Room and study rooms remain closed. The Friends set up a bookcase outside of the book store, filled with popular items priced at $1.
