Free Library of New Hope and Solebury to relocate during renovations

free libraryThe Free Library of New Hope and Solebury will be closed Monday, Sept. 21 through Saturday, Sept. 26 in order to relocate for its upcoming renovation, according to a recent press release.

The library will reopen Monday, Sept. 28, at 10 a.m., at its temporary location, St. Martin of Tours School, located at 1 Riverstone Circle in New Hope. The library will not be accepting any book donations now through its renovation, they say.

“We will continue to be fully functional as a library, with computer and wifi access, delivery service and of course the ability to check out items in the collection,” reads the library statement. “Patrons are invited to visit us often, and get the latest scoop on all of the wonderful improvements being made to the building. We plan to return to our Ferry Street location in the spring of 2016.

“This project is supported in part through a grant from the Office of Commonwealth Libraries, Pennsylvania Department of Education, with funds provided from the Keystone Recreation, Park and Conservation Fund,” continued the release.

“This renovation has been in the works for over 30 years. It is exciting to see it finally coming to fruition,” said Connie Hillman, library director. “We are very grateful to all those in the community who have contributed to the project. A library is a reflection of its community, and this couldn’t have happened without its support.”
