Minot Public Library entrance gets $200,000 update

By  | 

The Minot Public Library is giving its entrance a facelift.

The Library is replacing its nearly ten decade old retaining wall with more modern and safer railing.

The estimated two hundred thousand dollar project focuses on parts of the wall that are nearly five feet off the ground.

Staff says they hope the railing will not only provide a safer entrance but also a more appealing one.

"For safety reasons we really need to have a rail on this wall. Unfortunately for the kids who love to walk along it it's not the safest so we've decided to upgrade the entire wall and make it a little more sleek and match the rest of the building while also making it safe," says Janet Anderson, Minot Public Library Director.

The library will remain open during construction. Construction is expected to finish up by the end of July.
