The front gardens at Bucks County Free Library’s Doylestown branch will be revitalized over the next two weeks.
Library services will not be impacted by construction, which should be complete by April 30. The drive-up book drops may be temporarily unavailable, but the book drop beside the front door will remain accessible.
The centerpiece of the exterior refresh is a music court that will live just outside the library’s front door. Musicians of all ages can play in-ground cymbals, pagoda bells, harp chimes and a metallophone.
The walkway and parking lot will offer nine new benches, including two benches equipped with solar-powered chargers for mobile devices. Plans also call for new trees, native perennials, and a drift of daffodils and hyacinths near the drive-up book drops.
The exterior refresh is supported by library capital funds from individual donors and bequests.
