Princeton Public Library will repave a section of parking lot

Repaving will begin sometime between Aug. 7 and 17

PRINCETON — The west section of the Princeton Public Library parking lot will be repaved some time between  Aug. 7 and 17.

This particular area is in need of repair and Advanced Asphalt is graciously working on the project while in town completing other roadwork.

The library board agreed during a special meeting on Thursday, Aug. 6, that it was an appropriate use of the building and maintenance levy. They also discussed the importance of letting patrons know in advance, since they will be asked to return books using the indoor backdrop, located near the cafe.

In addition, the library has suspended late fees since re-opening, therefore, patrons may return materials at anytime after completion of the road work.
