Walk this way
Day One of the library's closure finds staff in "all-hands-on-deck" mode to shelve books, thus clearing the bookcarts. All those carts now house books and materials normally arranged around the perimeter of first floor. That area is awaiting its new coat of paint.
The downstairs hallway leading to the meeting rooms has been stripped of carpeting. This photographer found that not only does the area look tacky in its current state, it also features a sticky residue that slows the pace of anyone navigating through. As the old flooring exits the building, we are looking forward to our first larger-than-sample-size view of the new surfaces.
