Joe Zappacosta, Director of the Hackley Public Library invited us down during the temporarily closure and gave us some insight. While it's a sad time with no patrons in sight inside the library, workers utilize this special moment to perform tasks that normally could not be done when it’s opened to the public, such as deep cleaning the shelves, weeding their collection, relocating books and other maintenance. Watch the video where Joe Zappacosta, Mallory Metzger, and Lydia Schmidt show you around behind the scene.
