APL HOWE BRANCH TO GET NEW PARK
Closure Required While Work is Done on Adjoining Property 12/29-12/31
We're putting up a park at our Howe Branch!
This project requires us to close Howe, at Schuyler and Broad streets in the South End, on Dec. 29-31 (Tues-Thurs) so we can do work on an adjoining property. The closure is for the convenience and safety of patrons and staff.
We are doing work on the neighboring property in preparation for the new park, which will be completed and open to the public in the spring. Before it was renovated in 2009, the Howe Branch included a very popular "Peace Park" that was used by the library for programming. The new park will be a gated greenspace that can be used by library patrons and the neighborhood, just like the original.
All of our other branches will be open while Howe is closed this week, so we hope you'll visit one of them, or use our online eLibrary.
