Construction Update

Sept. 10 - This week we have reopened the adult area and collections with the exception of the Biography section (if you need something from Biography ask a staff member and we'll get it for you if we can!).  The Young Adult materials are mostly available but the new Teen Room is not yet open to the public.  Work is beginning in the front reading rooms and the former audiobook & CD space, and on the second floor.  These areas will probably be closed for a couple of weeks, but check back for updates!  The magazine collection in the front rooms is unavailable but if you need something specific you can always ask and if we can get to it we'll retrieve it for you.

The library is dedicated to making the collection and services as available as possible during construction.  Your continued patience and understanding is greatly appreciated.
