Noble Library Reopening

When: Sun., May 15 2011

Tomorrow morning, after seven months and $1 million in renovations, staffers will reopen the Noble branch of the Cleveland Heights-University Heights Public Library. Today, however, they party. You can join them from 2 to 4 p.m. for live entertainment, refreshments, and a sneak peek at the upgrades, which include a new entrance, a new children's room with a full-sized tree sculpture, and enhanced technological capacities. All the upgrades were done with respect for the 1937 building's original woodwork and decorative features, says library director Nancy Levin. "We worked closely with [Cleveland architecture firm] Studio Techne to make sure we retained the beauty of the building while converting it to a more user-friendly space." Later this year, a second phase of renovations will include preservation of the building's brick and stone facade, which was designed by the same prestigious architectural firm that created Severance Hall and the Transportation Gods on the Lorain-Carnegie Bridge. You'll find the fun at 2800 Noble Rd. in Cleveland Heights. For more info, go to heightslibrary.org. — Cicora
