Moorestown Library to Close Saturday as Transition to New Complex Begins

Officials previously said a grand opening for the new complex will take place after the library transition is complete.

The Moorestown library is on the move.

The library will be closed for about three or four weeks beginning at the end of the business day on Saturday, May 31, as its contents are moved into the new municipal complex, Moorestown officials announced on Thursday.

The library will be part of the new complex that currently houses the new town hall. The town hall opened May 19 with the first council meeting held in the new facility that night.

Officials previously stated a grand opening ceremony would be held once the library moved into the new complex.

A fire destroyed the previous town hall in 2007. Since then, council met at two district schools, including the high school for the last several months.

Ragan Design and Greyhawk were involved in the design, coordination, engineering and facilitation of the $11,410,723 project.

The building is the first in Moorestown to feature solar panels on the roof.

They want a new building and pay raises? How about holding some bake sales then. By the way VoIP is easy if Comcast ran the appropriate wiring. It's just wiring. Same as phones. The IT pro should have handled this easily. However they should have a redundant system in case the VoIP doesn't work like now so the alarm system could notify the fire department in case of a trash can fire.

Library hasn't had raises in years. The deserve one. As for it person,106,000.00 per year plus a yearly bonus they call longevity. Close to 108,000.00 per year; phones, computers and all else it should run as smooth as cash , I mean glass. Freudian slip

No one deserves anything. They get our tax dollars and if they can't make it work, that is bad management. Why do we have a new building if we can't afford to pay the staff? Not very fiscally responsible.

Library staff required to have degrees and background checks. They work with our children and grandchildren. Are all of our employees required to have and do same? My question, will all the staff at town hall be subject to full background checks now that the library is attached to town hall? They will have direct daily access to children. We've had our share of difficulties in this area. Think it's time to form a third party in town; the Bran party. It will eliminate the mental constipation caused by the diuretic effects of too many tea parties

Tea is a good thing for your health especially green tea.
