MANCHESTER - Fourteen months after the West Community Branch Library flooded, the renovation project has been completed.
"We can't wait to welcome people back," Denise van Zanten told the Union Leader.
On Feb. 17, a sprinkler burst, leaving the lower level of the library with over 5 feet of water, van Zanten told the paper. Leaving the library with close to $465,000 in damages between the building itself, and books and other items.
Reopening the library was not an option because of the amount of damage done. The new branch will be located at 76 N. Main St., adjacent to the Cashin Senior Center on Douglas Street.
Van Zanten and her staff are welcoming back members of the community during an open house on Friday from 3-6 p.m.
