READING, Pa. -

The main branch of the Reading Public Library is back in business.

The doors opened Thursday morning for the first time since August.

The library was closed for months because the century-old building needed renovations.

The plaster inside has been touched up, the roof's been repaired and there's new carpeting and a fresh coat of paint on the walls.
