The Building and Sites Committee of the Public Library of Youngstown & Mahoning County has awarded the contract for the renovation project at Boardman Library to Adolph Johnson & Son Company of Mineral Ridge.
The company was one of five bidders on the renovation project. Their bid, which includes four alternates, was the lowest at $600,655.
Work is expected to begin around the second week of July. The branch is expected to remain open through most of the project, but there is a possibility of a short closing at the end of August while work is done on the entrance. More information will be available closer to that time.
“The Boardman branch will remain open as much as possible during the construction project and we would like our patrons to note that as work is being completed in various sections, library materials and furnishings will be relocated to clear those spaces. Staff members and signage throughout the branch will help direct customers to the materials they need during this time. Library patrons can also use nearby branches, such as Poland and Newport libraries, if they wish to avoid using the Boardman Library during construction,” said Library Communications and PR Director Janet Loew.
Construction is expected to take several months. The Boardman branch, which opened in 1992, has had some repairs and remodeling over the years, but it has not had a major renovation until the current project.
