The Eldredge Public Library on Main Street in Chatham announced yesterday that the doors will reopen on Monday. The library was closed over three weeks ago to undergo extensive mold removal.
On Monday, October 7, the library will resume its regular hours of Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Tuesday and Thursday from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Library Director Irene Gillies thanked their patrons for their patience and the CLAMS library system and the Brooks Free Library for accommodating Eldredge users during the closure which began on September 12.
In a September 23 update, Gillies reported that work was well underway. Carpeting in the lower level had been removed and the Town of Chatham engaged ServPro to clean the floors and ducts.
While work was done in the library, many programs were able to continue at the Chatham Community Center and the Brooks Free Library in Harwich. Many of the library's programs will continue at the community center until the carpet is reinstalled.
As a thank you to patrons of their patience during the closure, the library will suspend late fees for any books, DVDs and other borrowed items returned during the first opening week of October 7-12.
