 The Library, one of the 37 Buffalo & Erie County Public Libraries, wishes to thank all of their patrons who patiently waited for the completion of repair work. A special thank you also goes out to the City of Buffalo, owners of the building.  The Library greatly appreciates the support of the City of Buffalo, Mayor Byron Brown, Lovejoy District Common Council Member Richard Fontana, Public Works Commissioner Steven Stepniak and the City’s Department of Public Works staff.  

Repairs included replacing the main electrical service/panel, HVAC controls, all ceiling tiles, all carpeting, internal signage (the latter three were due to smoke damage).  The entire interior was also repainted.

We are grateful for the donation of two new wing chairs from our partners, Project Flight.
