As recent visitors will have noted, the library is using this quieter time in August to make some important facility improvements. We appreciate your accommodation as we re-carpet most of the first floor, stairways, mezzanine, and meeting room. The carpet crew is doing much of the work on Sundays when the library is closed, however, we will have to temporarily close some areas, one at a time. The YA/Media Room will be closed on August 20th and the Reference Room the following day in order to move the furniture and materials to carpet those areas. The Hammond Meeting Room was not reserved for use on August 27, so it will be closed for carpeting that day.
After almost 20 years, it is also time to replace the burgundy wall coverings and a new color has been selected to go with the new carpet. Removal of the old fabric has already taken place during closed hours and the new green fabric will be installed on closed Sundays, August 12 and 19.
Thank you for helping us expedite this work which should be completed by Labor Day. We are excited about the library’s fresh new look and hope that you will be, too.
