Messenger Library Parking Lot Project Closing Sept 16th and 17th

The Messenger Public Library (113 Oak St.) will need to be closed entirely for two consecutive days on Monday September 16th and Tuesday September 17th due to the entrance driveway and parking lots be resurfaced in their entirety. The north emergency driveway will also be regraded and redone with new granite gravel.

All of this is weather permitting the work to be done.

An Alternate (or rain day(s)) are the following Monday and Tuesday September 23rd and 24th.

We will provide updates as is the usual of any changes as soon as we are able to do so.

Starting Tuesday September 3rd and through the month of September staff and at times patrons will have to park in the Church parking lot located just to the west of the library as temporarily parking.

The safety of our employees and our patrons are of paramount concern during the duration of this project.

The project work will start August 29th and will run with its substantial complete by October 8th.

The Library Board thanks everyone for their patience and apologizes in advance for any inconvenience this may temporarily cause our library patrons.
