Library’s grand re-opening is Jan. 22

The Hussey-Mayfield Memorial Public Library will re-open in style at its grand re-opening ceremony at 4 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 22.

The library board will cut the ribbon at 4 p.m., followed by remarks by board President Steve Caltrider. Zionsville resident Ray Cortopassi will also speak.

Children will be greeted by staff members and Teen Council members dressed as Clifford, Darth Vader, Angelina Ballerina, Bob the Builder, Dora the Explorer, Harry Potter, the Cat in the Hat, Laura Ingalls and the Zionsville Eagles mascot. As children tour the building, they will receive stamps on a special map from the characters.

Adults can tour the building, too, either on their own or as part of guided tours of all three floors. Guided tours are available at 4:45 p.m., 4:55 p.m. and 5:05 p.m. They begin at the Youth Services reference desk on the first floor.

The library is closed this week as staff members and professional library movers get the building ready to resume service at 9:30 a.m. Monday, Jan. 23.

“It’s really exciting that we’re finally getting to move in,” said Teen and Adult Services Department Head Lee Greaves.

“The library moving company has moved a lot of our adult nonfiction collection to its new location. It’s really going to be a busy week to get everything together for the grand re-opening and opening for business Monday morning,” she said.

Greaves said many volunteers are helping out. She said they are excited about the new building opening, too.

“It seems like we have a lot of volunteers who have come in this week to help,” she said, adding even the regular volunteers are popping in more often to lend a hand.

She has no estimates about how many visitors the library expects to see at the grand re-opening, but she hopes many community members will turn out for the event.
