Central Library http://wrvo.org en Renovations on Syracuse's Central Library begin http://wrvo.org/post/renovations-syracuses-central-library-begin <p>It's been almost two years since Onondaga County lawmakers approved funding for renovation of the Central Library in downtown Syracuse. Now the first steps in revamping the facility are starting.</p><p>The Central Library has been ensconced in the Galleries of Syracuse for 25 years now. When it opened up, the Galleries was a retail hub, that's now morphed into what amounts to an office building. Central Librarian Doreen Milcarek says the facility needs to downsize, a move that will reflect staffing cutbacks and the changing needs of library patrons.</p> Tue, 09 Jul 2013 13:00:52 +0000 Ellen Abbott 40778 at http://wrvo.org Renovations on Syracuse's Central Library begin
