Bridgewater, NJ. January 18, 2013. – The Somerville Public Library, located at 35 West End Avenue in Somerville, NJ, will close at 3 pm on Wednesday, January 23 and reopen at approximately 12 noon on Friday, January 25. During that time, asbestos abatement will take place at the library.
The library is getting ready to undergo renovations later this year in order to provide better space utilization for patrons’ use and enjoyment. While the asbestos is currently contained and sealed in floor tiles and of no risk to anyone, the tiles must be removed to insure that they are not broken during the construction work.
