That’s the first thing people remark about the year-long renovation of the Elaine I. Sprauve Library.
It’s cool … because it’s air conditioned.
It’s also wired. WiFi Internet access is available in the two-story Enighed building which is more than 200 years old. It was brought back to life as a library, from decay in the late 70s.
During the recent $700,000 renovation, walls were plastered, the roof was replaced, the building was repainted and, as we mentioned, air conditioning was installed. The better to protect the library’s holdings and to encourage people to spend more time there. A new generator was also installed.
The Library also has a museum including a collection of photographs, documents, and historic artifacts about St. John.
