Now that the Carnegie Library building’s major construction is complete, Patchogue-Medford Library has been working through the summer on all of the finishing touches that will make the building ready for operation.
Painting of the columns and trim as well as adjustments to the concrete pouring on the building’s ramp are ongoing through the summer.
The library is preparing for a mid-September opening for the building to become the new home for the Teen department, and shelves have been ordered for the building. As materials move over from the main building to the Carnegie, they may at first be placed on carts until the shelving arrives. Temporary tables and chairs will also be set up in the building when it opens.
In the meantime, the Carnegie Library has served as a venue for two Tai Chi classes. People taking the classes were able to use the main floor, with those taking the daytime version of the event having the sunlight wash in from the large windows installed on the building.
Also, for those playing the popular Pokemon Go mobile game on iPhone and Android phones, the Carnegie Library also just happens to be a Gym in the game. This allows players to walk up to the building, and battle whichever creatures happen to be stationed at the gym within the game.
