Multiple agencies responded to a fire at Pleasant Valley Library Tuesday.

Poughkeepsie Journal

The expansion and renovation of the Pleasant Valley Free Library is expected to break ground two years after a basement fire ravaged the building. 

The fire reached up to the third floor on Nov. 6, 2018. However, the library’s building has since been declared as structurally sound, said Joy Dyson, board of trustees president.

“We’ve received our¬†insurance money from the fire, and the board decided to rebuild in the location,” Dyson said. “Because of the fire, we have to meet all ADA standards for current 21st century requirements.”
