(Toledo, OH) The downtown library wants to hear from the public again tonight on a proposed closure.
The main library branch will shut down for nearly a year sometime after Labor Day for renovations, a proposal that's received a lot of public criticism.
So library officials are looking for public input tonight to lessen the impact of those major renovations. The $10.4 million in renovations include technology upgrades, expanded meeting rooms, and the creation of innovative spaces for a better visitor experience. Passport services will be moved to a Sylvania branch, while patrons would have to pick up online orders at other library branches.
The public forum runs 6 to 8 p.m. in the downtown library's McMaster Center.
