Last year, the Verona Public Library embarked on a near gut renovation that would both revive its Carnegie Library core and add new reading and meeting space. There will be a new look to the main lobby and circulation desk, more room for the library’s book collections, an expanded area for computer use, new bathrooms, indoor stroller parking and an elevator to take Library patrons from floor to floor.
The work is scheduled for completion in early December, and on Monday, Library Director Cheryl Ashley took some of her staff through the building so that they could see the progress.
