PITTSTON — The Pittston Memorial Library held a special grand opening open to the community on Saturday, Aug. 15 to celebrate the library’s new additions.
The expansion was part of a 5,175-square-foot addition which includes a children’s wing, a community conference meeting room that will hold 125 people, plus other library features.
The $1.5 million construction project started in November 2014. The library closed its doors on Thursday, July 9 for three weeks as final work was completed on the new children’s wing, named the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Center, and the community room, known as the John P. Cosgrove Center.
