North Summit library to delay opening

The North Summit Library has pushed back its opening from Sept. 1 until Sept. 27 due to a delay in receiving the necessary construction permits according to Summit County library director Dan Compton.

Compton said the architect is confident that the building will be ready to open Sept. 27. The contractor will be charged a penalty of $100-a-day if the project is not complete by Sept.1.

The Summit County Library Board decided at their meeting last week that patrons will now be allowed to check out six media items such as DVDs, C.Ds, and books on tape, at once. Previously, only three media items could be checked out at one time.
