August 20: In just a few short weeks, the new entry will be complete. The non-fiction collection has moved to the 1st floor, and the new teen room will also be finished in September. Staff are busy making furniture selections, computers are being installed in the new lab, and it won’t be long until the project is finished. We are still on track for completion in late December/early January.
Starting August 1st, Blackstone Library items checked out on your account will be automatically renewed a maximum of two (2) renewals.
There are some exceptions:
- Items checked out on your card from other libraries are not guaranteed to be renewed.
- Items with holds will not be renewed.
You will receive a courtesy notice a few days before your item is due, notifying you of the automatic renewal. If you have any questions, please just ask us!

June 7 – Marble for the new entry was delivered from the Tennessee Marble Company today. This is the same quarry that supplied the marble for the original construction in 1893. Summit Masonry will be working hard on the installation in the coming weeks. The entry is scheduled for completion in August. Thanks to Downes Construction and Silver/Petrucelli + Associates for a great project so far.
