Renovations Made to Local Library

 Story image 1_0




The Eastern Township Library has made some constructional renovations to the basement of the building and the outer wall throughout the past month.


The Eastern Township Library is Crofton’s local library and is located next to Hodson Lumber on Main Street. The library has a collection of 7,177 books of all genres, though their most read genre is mystery. They have ten computers along with free wifi. They even offer books that have Accelerated Reading (AR) tests on them. All of these books are marked along with their reading level.


The library director, Diane Limoges, and the Library Township Board were in charge of giving the approval to start the renovations. All of the renovations are being completed by Larry Peitz. A water leak on the outside was fixed, the old carpet in the basement was torn up and new tile flooring was laid, and new sheetrock was put up on the walls and painted. The only renovation that is left to complete is the final trim needs to be added. Once this is done, the furniture and books will be moved back to where it belongs.


The renovations will supply visitors with a more enjoyable experience. Limoges stated, “There is no longer a mildew smell throughout the library as the mold from the water leak has been removed. This also allows the basement to be usable again.”
