BROOKLYN - Officials today unveiled the newly restored library doors of Central Library in Grand Army Plaza.

Funding for the project was provided by Partners in Preservation, an effort by American Express and the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The library won a $250,000 grant to pay for the renovations after the doors had fallen into disrepair.

Officials say the doors had not been replaced since the building opened in 1941. They say the new doors were designed to resemble an open book.

The president of the library says it will refurbish the existing elevators and make additional upgrades to the library in the coming years.
