The time has come! Construction is underway!
The Lower Macungie Township Board of Commissioners has undertaken a significant expansion of the Township’s Community Center. Recognizing that the Library contributes immensely to the community’s quality of life, the Commissioners approved an expansion of the Library as part of the plan.
An additional 4,400 square feet will be added to the Library that will house our Children’s Wing. The additional space affords larger classes for our children’s programming.
Moving the children’s area out of the current space will bring two meeting rooms for public use. The rooms will be open for quiet study and tutoring. Adult programs will be scheduled in these rooms.
The purpose for adding these areas is simple…our patrons want quiet space and areas to meet and collaborate.
The project will take months and there may be some inconvenience to you, our patrons. It will all be worth it when you see how the Library is transformed!
We want to keep the public and you, our patrons, updated on construction progress. We will endeavor to add pictures and weekly updates.
This is Suzy Q, our project manager. She will keep us informed with the latest updates.
Electrical work is pretty much complete. HVAC is here this week (it will be noisy and at times smelly due to cutting and welding).
Framing for the drywall is complete. Plumbers are here today adjusting the sprinkler heads. Electrical is scheduled to be onsite Thursday. Next week HVAC will begin their work.
Framing for the walls will be completed this week. The noise should stop for a while. The electrical contractor will begin work soon. Once completed, the drywall will be installed.
The framing for the walls is being installed this week followed by the dry wall. The area is starting to take shape. I don’t have a construction schedule yet. The general contractor is finishing it and then it goes to the subcontractors.
The framing and dry wall for the quiet study/meeting room will be installed next week. So, it might be a bit more noisy than now. They hope to do some or most of the cutting outdoors. The excitement continues to build!!
