Why

Thanks to Mahopac voter approval of the June bond referendum, we are able to begin renovations to create a more comfortable, sustainable building that will serve our community for years to come.

Our goals are:

  • decrease our energy and insurance costs by installing additional insulation to interior walls and exterior soffits
  • make necessary adjustments to the existing HVAC system;
  • regrade and resurface portions of the parking lot;
  • prevent storm water pooling by entryway steps and sidewalk
  • adjust or replace drafty windows on the North side of the building

Closing the Library building and moving to a temporary location will save time and money as the renovation project can proceed without interference or interruption.

We welcome this opportunity to make your library everything that you need to pursue your dreams and achieve your goals. As soon as we can safely open our Library building we will let you know. In the meantime, please visit us at 906 Route 6, or contact us via phone or email.
