Reconstruction of library 2011 – 2012
Thanks to the successful project “Regional Operational Programme Strengthening the Cultural Potential of the Region” – intervention in memorial and repository institutions., the Town Library building finally got extensive reconstruction which brought a number of positive changes. Renovation work, which started in September 2011 and lasted until March 2012, included repair of the roof, replacement of glass windows, renovation of the boiler and insulation of the facade, which lowered the energy consumption of the building. The newly-built 10-person elevator was a substantial acquisition, thanks to which the library became barrier-free. Therefore our services can also be used by physically handicapped citizens and, in addition, the elevator also makes access to books easier for parents with strollers or seniors. Reconstruction of the library building optimized the technical, aesthetic and interior conditions for providing library services in accordance with the Strategy for the Development of Slovak Libraries development while at the same time preconditions for the development of new kinds of services for local and regional citizens were formed.
