in Meeting Room A
Beginning on Monday, July 17, the main entrance will be closed for approximately 30 to 45 days while work begins to buildout flooring and useable space above the entryway.
While the main entrance is closed, the public will have full access to the Library via a temporary, handicap accessible ramp which will run along the southwest corner of the building, entering the building near the flagpole.
During scheduled meetings and programs, Library meeting rooms will remain accessible to the public. Access will be afforded via the southwest emergency exit door, which opens to the West parking lot.
While the main entrance is closed, public access to restrooms will be rerouted to the northwest corner of the building, near the administrative offices.
In line with our strategic priority to secure early literacy and cultivate lifelong readers in Wadsworth, we are embarking upon some exciting changes in our children's area on the second floor of the Library.
Construction is currently underway with Sander Contracting of Akron, Ohio. Wadsworth Public Library is working with Ruhlin Company of Sharon Center as an owner's agent to oversee the work.
The project involves three major elements:
Funding for the project, which is currently estimated at approximately $250,000, includes a significant donation of 51% of the total project cost from the Wadsworth Public Library Foundation. The remaining costs will come from the Library's capital fund, reserves which serve to strengthen and preserve the physical and technological infrastructure of the Library over time.
