The facelift rumors are true!
Round Rock Public Library is getting a much-needed makeover and will be closed to the public September 29 through November 2, 2008.
Why? Our library is open 71 hours per week, holidays excepted. That adds up to a great deal of foot traffic and just overall wear and tear. The checkout/checkin area serves a continually growing population, handles mountains of books and materials, and needs to be reconfigured to work more efficiently.
Those of you visiting the library recently have witnessed the beginning stages--painters, offices full of boxes, and staffers peering at blueprints. And while we're closed, we'll share pictures and updates about the renovation. Beginning September 29, we'll post new photos and comments every day or two. Many of these photos will show staff hard at work preparing the library for opening.
For now, some "before" views:
