Ribbon cutting set for May 10.

ELKHART — The Elkhart Public Library is putting the finishing touches on its renovation project.

Since renovations began in October, the library has seen many changes take place, including a children’s reading room and new technology areas.

Now all of that is nearly complete.

“We’re putting together the ‘punch list’ now,” said Deb Stewart, library director. She explained that the list is comprised of unfinished details that were noticed during a walk-through with contractors.

At this point, the whole building is open again. Much of what is left to be done is painting.

The library is planning several days of activities once the project is completed. A ribbon-cutting ceremony with the Chamber of Commerce is being planned for May 10. An open house is also planned for local businesses on 11, with another, more family oriented day, set for May 12.

For more information contact the library at 522-3333 or on its website at www.myepl.org.

 A 15-year-old boy, seen sitting on a stretcher center, who stowed away in the wheel well of a flight from San Jose, Calif., to Maui is loaded into an ambulance at Kahului Airport in Kahului, Maui, Hawaii Sunday afternoon, April 20, 2014. The boy survived the trip halfway across the Pacific Ocean unharmed despite frigid temperatures at 38,000 feet and a lack of oxygen, FBI and airline officials said. FBI spokesman Tom Simon in Honolulu told The Associated Press on Sunday night that the boy was questioned by the FBI after being discovered on the tarmac at the Maui airport with no identification.
