With gratitude for the generous support of the Lewiston Library Foundation, the Lewiston City Library is excited to announce the opening of the Rooftop Gallery and Performance Space. The public is invited to visit the Rooftop Gallery on June 10 from 1 PM to 6:30 PM for our Grand Opening which will be an open house lasting throughout the afternoon to allow for social distancing.
Formally opening June 7 for summer reading registration, the Rooftop Gallery may be accessed from the east side of the second floor of the library. It will be open to the public during regular library open hours, except during times of inclement weather. While food is allowed on the Rooftop Gallery, smoking is not and all other library policies apply to the space including the unattended child and vulnerable adult policy. Ensuring the space is available for the public to enjoy, it is not reservable for functions.
The Lewiston Library Foundation and its thoughtful donors have contributed almost seven hundred thousand dollars to the city for the project. Their progressive thinking interpreted into design by Castellaw Kom Architects has elevated Lewiston to be the only community in our state with a free public library rooftop space.
We look forward to seeing you on the Rooftop.
