Capital Improvement Project Begins this Summer


The Library Board has approved a major capital improvement project for the Library. Based on feedback from the residents as part of the Library’s Strategic Plan, three areas of the Library will be renovated beginning this summer. The meeting room will undergo an expansion and renovation of the entire space with upgraded technology and new furnishings. Other improvements include a new, modern circulation desk relocated to the center of the building and a new public computer area relocated near the entrance.

The building will remain open through most of the three-month construction period and will only be closed on days when absolutely necessary for staff

and patron safety. Updates on the project and closed days will be posted

on our website and social media outlets. Thank you in advance for your

patience! Construction is expected to begin in early August and run

through early November.
