Enoch Pratt Renovations Nearing Completion (BBJ Story)
Scaffolding around the Enoch Pratt Central Library came down recently, a sign that the $115 million renovation of the building is nearly complete.
Meghan McCorkell, director of marketing and communications, said the library may hold an official reopening of the Mount Vernon main library in September. Work began on the 86-year-old library nearly three years ago. The library will close from March 1 to March 10 while construction crews move out of the first floor where they have been working. During that time, collections, furniture and other items currently residing in other parts of the building will also be moved back to the first floor.
