McCormick Riverfront Library to close temporarily before grand re-opening following renovations, expansion

The McCormick Riverfront Library

A significant library expansion project in Harrisburg will soon be completed.

The Dauphin County Library System announced on Thursday that it would close McCormick Riverfront Library from Sept. 30 to Oct. 19 to complete the last phase of renovations.

The library broke ground in Oct. 2021 on a $3.5 million project to renovate the existing library, as well as the historic Haldeman Haly House next door, and attach the two buildings.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony for the project will be held on Oct. 20 at 10 a.m., the library announced.

Items returned to the outside drop boxes during the closure will be collected but may not be checked in right away. The library is not currently assessing late fees due to COVID-19 restrictions.

The McCormick Riverfront Library is located at 101 Walnut St., Harrisburg. For more information on the library closing, call 717-234-4961. To learn more about the reopening activities visit the library’s website.
