The Atlantic City Free Public Library has completed a significant renovation project, which included substantial upgrades to its heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems. The project, costing over $1.34 million, was financed through grants and the New Jersey Library Construction Bond Act.

Under the supervision of library director Robert Rynkiewicz, the renovation involved installing new rooftop air conditioning units and updating the library’s facilities. These enhancements are intended to create a more comfortable and inviting atmosphere for visitors.

Melissa McGeary, the library's Assistant Director, highlighted the project's positive impact on the community in an interview with the Press of Atlantic City. "Modernizing our technology infrastructure and providing extensive support for education, wellness, and workforce development will enhance our ability to serve our patrons," she stated.

Additionally, the library intends to broaden its high-speed broadband access and collaborate with AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center to offer wellness programs, health screenings, and support sessions. Looking ahead, the library plans to launch a digital connect program and undertake further renovations to improve its services.
