ST. AGNES LIBRARY reopens! Among the major renovations are a new roof; an elevator and entrance ramp; new, large windows that restore original design features; new air-conditioning and heating; new furniture, bookshelves, and lighting; and a first-floor floor-length graphic installation. This Upper West Side landmark library reopened its doors on February 11 and celebrated with daylong festivities.
