Porter Library will celebrate renovation, thank Patton and Baker
Westlake Porter Public Library will celebrate the completion of its renovation project and thank State Senator Tom Patton and State Representative Nan Baker for their years of service with a special event on Sunday, May 15, at 2 p.m. All are invited to attend.
The event will feature remarks by Patton and Baker, who will be leaving their posts at the end of the year, as well as Library Director Andrew Mangels. Their remarks will be followed by tours of the newly refurbished areas, and refreshments.
The $600,000 renovation began in the Youth Services Department in November and moved forward through the building through the first quarter of 2016. The project addressed wear-and-tear on the 14-year-old building and includes some changes needed to better serve the public. It was funded through private donations and the library’s Permanent Improvement Fund.
Elaine Willis is the Public Relations Associate at Westlake Porter Public Library.
