First no patrons, now no office
Day Two of the library renovation saw staffers gingerly stepping around the margins of large areas on first and second floors. We're advised that the adhesive remover is slick and are willing to take the construction crew's word without testing for ourselves. When the flooring removal process is complete, tile will be laid in the public computer area on second floor. We spotted the boxes of tile and treated ourselves to a preview. Very classy! We think you'll be impressed and may offer you a glimpse shortly.
Day Three begins with two wall areas (for the new checkin/checkout area) being framed and an office for staff of the children's department reorganized on first floor. Due to walls being knocked down and some hallways closed off for flooring installation, a few staffers are roving the unaffected areas to scout for temporary workspace. In the midst of construction, library work continues. Shelf reading (checking and correcting books for proper order), program planning, creating staff training sessions on genealogy, and updating the library's online catalog are just a few of the tasks currently underway.
