Pound Ridge Library Gets Its New Front Walkway

POUND RIDGE, N.Y. – Patrons of the Hiram Halle Memorial Library in Pound Ridge can now enter the front entrance of the library without having to navigate the precarious temporary walkway that had been in place for several months.

Work was completed on the front sidewalk this week. In place of the rugged and bumpy rock-strewn entryway, library goers will now find a flagstone walkway that offers a less likely chance of tripping or turning an ankle. The sign warning patrons of the potentially dangerous sidewalk has been removed.

“Isn’t it beautiful?” Library Director Marilyn Tinter said of the new walkway. “It took a while, but it was worth it.”

Back in April, one of the library’s two furnace oil tanks leaked. The contaminated soil that surrounded the library had to be removed and replaced. As part of that project, the front sidewalk had to be removed as well and was replaced with a temporary slate and gravel walk.

Tinter said the restoration process is still not finished. More landscaping and planting will be done in the fall.
