WOOD TV8 Story – Major renovations underway at Holland’s Herrick District Library

HOLLAND, Mich. (WOOD) — Renovations are underway at the Herrick District Library in Holland.

Crews are demolishing parts of the Herrick Main Library on River Avenue near 12th Street. They’ll be installing a new roof, along with updating the library’s interior.

The project comes a few years after Herrick North Branch was expanded and renovated.

Diane Kooiker, the director of the Herrick District Library, said the 25-year-old main library’s roof was starting to leak and staff members had to put out buckets to catch the water during every rainstorm.

“We knew that we needed to redo the roof, which is no minor thing in a library, but we also had the opportunity then to look at floor coverings, how our library’s changing and the ability to update some of those things as well,” she said.
