Hosmer Library at 347 E. 36th St. closed in late August for renovations and will reopen in the spring of 2019.

The renovations aim to retain the century-old library’s historic character. Workers will repair the building exterior, skylight and wood windows. An interior renovation will place areas for children and teens near the front of the building, with a quieter area for computers at the back of the building.
