Earlier this week, Mayor Mitch Landrieu held a ribbon cutting ceremonial, celebrating the renovation of the Nix Library branch located on South Carrollton Avenue. The library closed indefinitely in October.
The library underwent $320,000 in renovations, which covered much-needed technological upgrades and infrastructure changes, according to the office of the Mayor.
The renovation of the library is apart of The City of New Orleans’ $42 million plan to reopen, rebuild and renovate 14 libraries across New Orleans.
Yesterday, the City of New Orleans broke ground on its new Nora Navra Library located in the seventh Ward. The Nora Navra library is the last of the 14 libraries to receive renovations.
The Nix library underwent extensive renovations including:
- A new floor plan design
- New paint
- Plaster repair
- 5 additional public computers, for a total of 11
- A New self-checkout machine
- New furniture and shelving
- A New water fountain
- New staff work area
- Plumbing and electrical work
- Floor replacement
- New hardscaping
- New Lighting
The Nix Library is open 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday. On Friday and Saturday it is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
