Renovations at the Smithtown and Kings Park branches of the Smithtown Special Library District are expected to be completed some time at the end of April, according to a report on the Times of Smithtown.
In March of 2008, residents approved a $21 million plan to modernize and renovate the existing library buildings and convert the abandoned Nesconset Armory building into a permanent Nesconset Branch, which also houses the library district’s offices. The Smithtown branch closed last July and Kings Park in April of last year, to begin renovations.
According to the report, 3,000 square feet of the Kings Park branch will be remodeled adding storage space in the basement as well as a children’s room.
The Smithtown branch will have a 6,000-square-foot addition, much of which will be for a community room and a historical Long Island collection to be housed the basement. A children's room has also been added.
All buildings within the library district are now LEED certified with energy efficient lights and windows and are eligible for LIPA rebates.
