South Side Branch ramp construction update

BAPL News No Comments »

Work on the new ramp to the main doors of the South Side Branch is still underway. Although these rainy days have delayed things a bit, the work should be done soon. The Branch continues to be open normal hours and use of the door closest to the book drop is still necessary. Thank you for your patience while we make this much needed upgrade!
