Facelift for Paulding library
Tuesday, June 25, 2013 2:39 PM

PAULDING – The main historic Carnegie library in Paulding will be undergoing substantial interior refurbishing this summer that will include new paint throughout and new carpet on the main floor.

In preparation for the centennial celebration, the library has awarded All Trades Restoration LLC the contract to manage this project.

“We have enjoyed our pink library for decades,” said Susan Pieper, library director. “But, it is time for a change. The library will be painted in more neutral earth tones that will blend beautifully with our existing warm walnut stained shelving units.”

The entire project will begin June 27 with the south genealogy wing, followed by the north non-fiction wing, the east fiction wing, the elevator alcoves and the lower floor. The project should be completed by September.

“We are hoping to keep the library open throughout this refurbishing,” states Pieper. “The only time we may have to close is for the carpeting.” Most areas will be accessible during the work. For more information contact Susan Pieper at 419-399-2032.
