Workers have spent the past month tearing off an original roof at Lee-Whedon Memorial Library in Medina, which opened in 1966. Progressive Roofing of Buffalo is installing a new built-up Tremco roof, a project that should be done in about a week. The $215,000 project also adds a layer of insulation to the roof, which should help cut down the library’s energy bills. The state is paying for half the project through a library construction fund. Lee-Whedon also plans to paint the interior of the building and add new carpeting and ceiling tile in the fall. The improvements are aimed to give the library, located at 620 West Ave., a new look for its 50th anniversary in 2016.
