The Charlestown branch of the Boston Public Library is scheduled to reopen November 26 after closing for several months of repairs.

The Boston Public Library announced Tuesday the Charlestown branch, located at 179 Main St., would reopen at 12 p.m. on Monday, November 26.

The library branch closed July 6 of this year to undergo construction and renovation.

The five-month project replaced the gas heater, electric cooling roof top unit and fans; installed new room temperature controls and sensors, and new window treatments; and made various concrete repairs and landscaping improvements, according to the library.

A new children’s librarian will also be joining the Charlestown branch when it reopens and visitors will find that the branch’s adult area and meeting room have been repainted, and all the library’s books have been reorganized.

The library plans to install a self check-out machine and early literacy nook in early 2013.
