Middletown Public Library to open Feb. 1

Middletown senior center and public library
Nearly completed: Middletown senior center and public library building
The new Middletown Public Library is scheduled to open the first of February, according to the November newsletter of Friends of the Middletown Gibson Library (FMGL).

According to FMGL President David Petry, writing in the November newsletter, “patience and determination,” not only of the Friends group but an entire community, have been guiding factors in achieving this goal.

Officers elected on Nov. 15 will preside over Friends of the Middletown Public Library.

According to library director Gehlen Palmer, both the old and new libraries will be closed during January for the move from the old to new library. The newsletter adds, the senior center part of the building will open in November.

At 1,790-square-feet, the current Middletown library served its community well but the new site’s 5,450-square-feet is a vital necessity.
