Excerpt: Bero said the $8 million renovation and 4,500-square-foot expansion still is on target to be mostly finished in September. Officials said computer access and seating will be limited through August.
Larger restrooms, more meeting space, additional study rooms and a dedicated area for teenagers are among the project’s highlights. Warren-Newport spans about 51,000 square feet off O’Plaine Road and was last expanded in 1997.
