Dear Friends of the Troy Public Library, Amazing Volunteers, and Valued Patrons.

We hope you had a Happy Easter and are enjoying the early Spring weather. ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒผ

As you know, our Lower-Level Book Shop has faced some significant challenges due to persistent leaks in the HVAC system. But fear not! Repairs have been underway for a couple of weeks, and workers have been making great progress to ensure that things are back in tip-top shape.

We expect these repairs will be completed by the end of April.

Now, hereโ€™s the plan ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป It will take about two weeks following the repairs to return the inventory from its current temporary off-site location and get things ready for you. So, at this moment, weโ€™re targeting a mid-May reopening. ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป

In the meantime, we have some exciting news! The Upper-Level Book Shop, located just across from the Circulation Desk in the Troy Public Library, has been open nearly every day for at least a couple of hours. Itโ€™s well-stocked with all your favorite gently-used fiction and non-fiction books of all genres, CDs, DVDs, games, jigsaw puzzles and even a few surprises. Check out the accompanying photos ๐Ÿ“ท

Important Note โ†’ While weโ€™re thrilled to see you, we are still not accepting donations. However, we kindly ask donors to collect and hang on to their treasures. Weโ€™ll need those generous contributions to restock before reopening. Weโ€™ll tell you โ€œWhenโ€

Stay tuned for more updates! Monitor this Facebook Page for progress reports and announcements, and together, weโ€™ll bring our beloved Lower-Level Book Shop back to life!

Thank you for your continued support โ€ฆ and enjoy the Great North American Solar Eclipse next Monday afternoon, April 8. ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฝ ๐ŸŒž๐ŸŒ‘๐ŸŒž
