GALVESTON, Texas — The Rosenberg Library on Wednesday will reopen its first floor after nearly five years of planning, fundraising and renovations to repair the historic building’s bottom level, which was damaged by Hurricane Ike in 2008.

The $4.5 million project at the library, 2310 Sealy Ave., was paid for by the Federal Emergency Management Agency funds, flood insurance and the library’s own fundraising efforts.

The new first floor includes a nautical-themed children’s department, the circulation department, renovated meeting rooms and several technology upgrades.
