Excerpt: The downtown library will have a temporary home at the historic Gaylord Building next year during library building renovations, under a verbal agreement announced this month.
The Lockport Public Library, 121 E. Eighth St., will undergo a renovation and expansion project starting in early 2012.
In addition to renovation of the entire building, the project will replace the one-story western wing with a two-story addition.
“During that process, we will need to relocate library operations to a temporary home at another location away from library construction,” said Scott Pointon, director of the White Oak Library District.
“We are happy to report that we have a verbal agreement with the Gaylord Building to house our ‘temporary’ library in their second- and third-floor gallery spaces,” Pointon said.
