Greenwich Library has begun work on a significant renovation to repurpose and enhance its Main Building at 101 West Putnam Avenue. The Library will remain open during the renovation, which is estimated to take 16 months, however portions of the building will be closed to public access, certain collections will be temporarily unavailable, and there will be some service limitations.
