Please Use the Front Door at Southworth Library on Friday, August 28

The back entrance to Southworth Library will be closed on Friday, August 28 so that repairs may be made to the cement walkway.  Over the years, the walkway has settled and the surface is no longer level, creating a tripping hazard.  The library will be open from 9:00 to 5:00 as usual.  The front door to Southworth is accessible by stairs from the parking lot and by a ramp from the sidewalk along Dartmouth Street.  It is expected that the back entrance will only be closed for one day.
