After months of construction, Farmingdale Public Library will reopen in late January with $1.6 million of new additions, including a new side entrance, an expanded space for children, a family bathroom, additional computers and other technology.
"It's been a real group effort and the renovated space will benefit the community," Library Director Debbie Podolski said. All costs of the project are being funded by the library's reserve funds.
The library has remained open since construction started in April and patrons are able to check out materials in the temporary basement space.
