PWPL Front Street entrance closes

MARQUETTE — The stairs leading to the Peter White Public Library along Front Street in Marquette will be closed until further notice.

Library Director Andrea Ingmire made the announcement Wednesday in an email newsletter after discovering the stairs were in “worse condition than expected.”

“The supporting structures under the stairs are built with ‘rubble construction’ and these structures are failing,” the newsletter states. “Fortunately, we found this issue now and not later when it would be even more difficult to repair.”

The library’s Front Street stairs and entrance will remain closed until the issue is resolved, the announcement states.
