The “most improved branch of the year”

Arnett Branch Library

It looked for a while like our neighborhood library was slated for closure due to budget cuts, but all that has changed!


Working collaboratively with Deb Leary, Bruce Tehan, and other library staff, some of our projects in recent years have included renovating the foyer, setting up a public display case of events, arranging a music program, renovating the walls of the Children’s Room (see below), and developing collaborative programs with School #29.

By summer 2012, the Arnett Branch logged over 10,000 visits in July alone, won the “most improved branch of the year” award in 2013, and was named the Public Library of the Year in the 2015 Rochester Regional Library Council’s community contest!
