The Sidney Sanders McMath Library in Little Rock will reopen at 9 a.m. Monday after having been closed since March for remodeling.
The Central Arkansas Library System branch, at 2100 John Barrow Road, will feature a new children’s programming room and an expansion of the existing children’s area, the library system said in a statement.
In addition to the children’s area, computers, parking space, new carpet, furniture and paint were added to the library.
An open house will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. June 21, and patrons visiting the library starting Monday will have the opportunity to register for prizes to be given away at the event.
After the library closed March 17 for the renovation, building materials for the library’s remodeling were vandalized, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette previously reported. On March 18, two wooden pallets of bricks were set on fire, damaging 8,500 bricks to the tune of $20,000, the construction company’s insurance company said.
