Renovation Update
The library is changing daily! 

Highlights include:
  • The shelf movers started work on Friday, January 31.
  • The lime green paint has been covered, and a lot of new carpet has been placed. 
  • New electrical lines have been run in many areas of the library.
  • Main floor bathroom renovation began Monday, February 3.

As the movers reposition the stacks to the south end of the library and put the books back on them, some of the stacks may periodically be inaccessible. However, library staff members will be happy to retrieve any items you might want in the meantime. Rest assured, the movers are moving as quickly as possible and plan for this part of the process to take less than two weeks.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to create the best space possible for our community. Be sure to watch Facebook and Instagram for updates!
