Rob Loscalzo of Tritec contacted the Friends of the Carnegie Library today to inform us the Carnegie Library move Scheduled for Midnight July 24th into 25th will be postponed. All activities for this event, including the gathering at Roast Coffee that night, will be postponed as well.
Mr. Loscalzo reported to me that a snag in negotiations with the Village and the owners of a property on West Avenue adjacent the Village Sewer Treatment Plant that was essential in utilizing for the move has caused the delay. The tentative rescheduled move date is August 8th. We will provide more details as they become confirmed.
This delay may actually be a net positive since Mr. Loscalzo also informs me County Legislator Rob Calarco is working quickly to secure a temporary agreement that will allow the Carnegie Library to be moved directly to the County property on West Ave and Main Street that will ultimately be the buildings final home.
The Friends of the Carnegie Library still plan to hold a gathering event the night of the move. Again, more details will follow soon.
To reconfirm: The Carnegie Library WILL NOT be moving July 24th. Still, this historic building is still being saved and moved soon and this delay should not be considered a set back at all.
All good things are worth the wait. Please stay tuned.
