Itching to walk inside a historical library?
As restoration continues on Patchogue-Medford Library’s Carnegie Library building, a video tour of the work done so far on the building has been posted online by the Citizens Campaign For Open Village Government.
The nearly five-minute video, which has no sound due to a technical error, first shows library staff and Suffolk County Leg. Rob Calarco touring the main floor of the future home for the Young Adult section.
At about the 3:13 mark, the video switches down to Carnegie Library’s basement, which is substantially cleaned up since its demolition work in June.
The $1.5 million project is currently set for completion around Jan. 2016.
As previously reported, funding has been provided by a generous benefactor, state construction grants and from ongoing donations through programs by the Teen Friends of Patchogue-Medford Library and the Friends of Patchogue-Medford Library.
