The West Tisbury Public Library is preparing for the big renovation. Construction on the new library will take approximately a year and a half. During the interim the temporary headquarters for the library will be located at Middletown Village, across the street from Conroy’s Apothecary.

The plan is to move in by mid-October.

The temporary library will be essentially an office space with minimal room for materials. To prepare, the library is asking for suggestions and comments from the community regarding how best to make use of this space. The library is also asking for general thoughts, including any questions, hopes, dreams and concerns the community has about the new space and the limbo period that is about to begin.
