Although our Grand Opening is scheduled for the end of October, the library has been open continuously throughout our construction and move to the new library space.
Collections were moved to the new library space in May. Because we did not yet have an occupancy permit, staff and visitors continued to work in the old library space, and library staff retrieved materials from the new library space.
Staff moved in to the new library space when we received our occupancy permit at the end of August, and the first visiting researcher used the library the next day.
We are busy putting the finishing touches on the new library for the Grand Opening celebrations Oct. 28–29, but we are fully operational. If you are in Bellefonte, stop by for a visit, or contact us with your research questions and requests.
