Construction of the new access ramp and stair improvements to the temporary Piedmont Avenue Library, on the grounds of the Piedmont Avenue Elementary School, is progressing.
The September opening was delayed, and the library is now scheduled to close its current location on 41st Street on Saturday, October 27, and transfer the books and other collections over the following weeks to the new site on the school playground.
Since the construction of necessary access was not completed in September, the official opening on the school playground will be November 27.
Saturday, October 27th is also the date of the Piedmont Avenue Halloween Parade. The Friends of the Piedmont Avenue Library plan to dress as books and lead the parade from the 41st Street library building to the modular units on Echo Avenue that will serve as the temporary library.
