Fredricksen Library has completed construction of its new lower level entrance as well as the new Business & Career Center @ Fredricksen housed on the main floor of the library.
A ribbon-cutting will be held at 10 a.m. Monday at the new entrance on Walnut Street in Camp Hill. Following the ceremony, both additions will be open for public use.
The lower-level entrance offers easier access to the Children’s Library and the public meeting rooms on the ground floor. Two handicapped parking spaces have been added on Walnut Street.
The Business & Career Center @ Fredricksen will bring workshops, programming and technology assistance centered on all stages of career goals with a focus on enhancing employability. Seminars and workshops will begin on May 21.
Construction in the library began in late 2018. The final phase, a Reading Plaza on the Walnut Street side, is expected to be complete this fall. The library raised funds through its Open Doors campaign and is selling engraved pavers for the reading plaza.
“We are very excited about the enhancements these projects bring to the Fredricksen Library community,” said Bonnie Goble, library director. “The new entrance, Business & Career Center and soon, the Reading Plaza, all open doors to new and innovative opportunities.”
Fredricksen Library is a member of the Cumberland County Library system and serves residents of six communities, including Camp Hill Borough, East Pennsboro Township, Hampden Township, Lemoyne Borough, Lower Allen Township and Wormleysburg Borough.
