Our Library Is Having Major Construction Work Done On Our 2nd Floor; Things Have Been Moved Around; Construction Zone Walls Are Being Erected

Hi Everyone!

I just want our library users to know that you will be seeing some major construction activity taking place on the 2nd floor of our library that will occur over the next 6 months.

Our library is building a 6,000 square foot “Teen Center” on the 2nd floor in the area where our Information Desk was located and extending back into the “deep bowels” of our library building that was set up for staff offices and materials.  The new location of the Information Desk is accessed on the 2nd floor by turning left from the stairwell or the elevator instead on walking straight across what used to be the open floor.

Also affected is our Magazine collection location that has been moved over to the Reference area.  Our newspaper storage and microfilm storage areas out of the view of the public have also been moved.  This move affects more our own internal change of where this material will be stored and accessed and not so much for you, the library customer.  Requests for this kind of material will still be able to be fulfilled but our staff will just be getting to the material in different manners and different locations within our building.

Things are just going to look different on the 2nd floor.  Old habits of accessing and viewing materials in locations you were familiar with will have to change during the construction period.  Be patient while both you and me acclimate to the temporary changes to accommodate the construction work.

Come on in and re-familiarize yourself with the new configuration of materials on our 2nd floor.

We will all get through this time of change!

  1. You forgot to mention the “front” door!!!

    • Hi Earl,

      I mentioned our “crashed-in front door” in a separate blog post on February 22, 2012.

      Between the front door reconstruction that will occur plus the 2nd floor major construction, it will appear for a short time that all we are doing is fixing and building!

      Be patient is all I can suggest for the short-term!
