YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — Youngstown’s main library will reopen Monday.

The library has been closed since Nov. 22, 2021 to finish phase two of renovations.

The construction is finished and people are welcome to see the new and improved facilities.

“It’s been nice to be able to parcel these things out because everybody needs some good news these days, right? So we have our family engagement area which has some great spaces for kids. Our DIY space is going to be open now, that’s our maker space in the main library,” said Public Library of Youngstown and Mahoning County CEO Aimee Fifarek.

There’s also a new space for genealogy and local history. The library will start its third and final phase and is expected to finish early 2022.
