Providence Community Library (PCL) is pleased to announce that Knight Memorial Library will reopen to customers on October 23. The building, which is located at 275 Elmwood Avenue, closed temporarily in late July for essential repairs and upgrades. Services and programs will resume during normal scheduled hours, Monday to Friday. Knight Memorial will be closed Saturdays until the end of the year and South Providence Library will continue to offer Saturday hours until the end of 2017.
“We regretted having to close the library over the summer to deal with urgent repairs and behind-the-scenes upgrades. Happily, we have now obtained the go-ahead to reopen safely for business” said Library Director, Jeff Cannell. “PCL is grateful to our community partners, The Center for South East Asians and the West End Recreation Center, for providing temporary accommodation for Knight Memorial’s after school and language learning programs for several weeks while the library building was closed. We also thank our customers for their patience during this difficult time.”
Work will continue intermittently on the historic 1922 building but PCL will do everything it can to minimize inconvenience to customers.
