Reiche Library Undergoing Changes

The Reiche Branch of the Portland Public Library has been undergoing an extensive refurbishment which is due to be completed by May 17th.

The improved Reiche Branch Library on Brackett Street includes an open floor plan and increased public square footage. Children’s materials will be moved to the front of the library, and adult resources to the rear, to create a more functional and practical layout.

The refurbishment includes painting, replacing the current orange shelving with new white shelves, and intensive cleaning of the space and materials. The library will also replace the current plexiglass windows, which are battered, severely stained, and unsafe for patrons and materials.

The work is being performed by library staff and volunteers from the Department of Parks and Recreation, Portland West’s youth in-service work crew, West End Neighborhood Association members, and participants in United Way’s Day of Caring on May 17th.

Due to the renovations, the Reiche Branch will be closed until May 17th at 5:00pm.
