The refaced east entry will now be the main entrance to the library.
Guess who’s part of the Family Reading Room’s mural? Hint: Her name begins with a “D”.
There is now one large meeting room that can be divided into two smaller meeting rooms where the Adult Non-Fiction shelves used to be. The rest of the area where the circulation desk and computers were will now be a place to relax and read. The genealogy room will stay where it was.
Instead of a ramp that takes up a lot of space, we now have a small lobby and elevator next to the new stairs inside the east entrance. We have two new bathrooms upstairs (on left of picture). The new circulation desk will be to the right of the stairway in this picture. There are also two new bathrooms downstairs.
The Friends of the Library Coffee Nook and Bookshop is taking shape :)
Inside the original entrance under the carpet we found some really nice blue and white tile.. I wonder how long it’s been covered up!
