Poland library set to reopen Friday

Staff report


The Poland Library, closed since Nov. 16, is likely to reopen Friday, library officials say.

Lawhon & Associates Inc., a Columbus air-quality company, told officials with the Public Library of Youngstown and Mahoning County on Wednesday that the Poland branch should be able to reopen Friday.

Library officials will provide more details Thursday.

The library closed Nov. 16 because of a foul smell. Hydrogen sulfide, a hazardous gas, was found in the elevator pit, likely coming from water in the elevator sump pit, according to a Lawhon & Associates report.

When the branch reopens, the elevator will not be available.

Kravitz’s Delicatessen’s location in the library is also expected to reopen Friday.
