Opening of Children's Library Delayed

The Phoenixille Public Library’s renovation is progressing and it is set to reopen its doors to the Adult Library on Tuesday, September 4. However, the reopening of the Children’s Library will take place on Monday September 24.

Over the last week it became clear that existing floor downstairs had deteriorated to an extent that requires removal of the existing tiles. This was not in the original scope of the project but is being addressed. The Children’s Library will open on September 24 to allot time to perform all of the requisite work necessary.

“All in all, the project has run very smoothly; we do not want to put carpet on a floor that is in disrepair,” said Susan Mostek, Interim Director.

Mostek also stated that she is excited for the public to see the progress that has occurred during the temporary closure.

“It is a very exciting time for us. We appreciate everyone’s patience and look forward to serving them with a vastly improved facility."

Public meeting to discuss future of Melchiorre Park scheduled for Nov. 29th

On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm. For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page , to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community. As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'. Source: Phoenixville Borough Website
