  • See You Tomorrow!

    The month of October has come to an end. The library is opening tomorrow and on that you can depend. We've dusted and wiped and vacuumed and swept. We've laughed and we've cheered and a few of us wept. We hope you'll enjoy all that we've done. For it has been an adventure. And the...

  • Where are our manners?

    It isn't that we weren't brought up correctly. Our mothers did teach us what to do when expecting visitors: arrange the furniture in a welcoming manner, have comfortable seating available, put away your toys and crafts, and, for heaven's sake--dust! Though we don't appear to have paid...

  • You've heard of "gray areas"...

    ...and we have a few of those in the library right now. These are spaces that are technically finished--sort of. The new checkin area is more or less complete, because the walls are done. However, no work surfaces or carts have been set up. The upstairs public area has classy new paint and floor coverings...

  • And now for some semblance of order...

    There is a light at the end of the tunnel, folks! And we've got the pictures to prove it. With just 11 days left before that target date of November 3rd, we are beginning to see the fruits of our labor and the labor of the construction workers. Here we see more of the results from the construction...

  • The only constant in life is change.

    Today saw the children's area beginning to come into its own and looking sharp. The stairs are now lined with anti-slip rubber material. The side trim is being applied today. From left to right we see Candy, Rebecca, and David busy developing strategies to more efficiently allocate our staff resources...

  • It's not a mess; it's art!

    Compared to the isolated areas of completed flooring, sparkling new paint, and just-put-back-together order, the messy parts of the renovation seem even more regrettable. This may be our most challenging phase, so we just look around and say kindly that the place definitely has potential. I surveyed...

  • What a Colorful Day!

    The man in the red plaid shirt is squatting next to the red chair to install the red shelves in the colorful new Teen Room. In other words, now that the carpet has been put down, J.D. can prepare the shelves where the books will be found. The white electrical socket hangs from the white ceiling in anticipation...

  • Eat your heart out, Jenny Craig

    Remember the old library circulation counter? It ranged over a sizable portion of first floor and encompassed checkin and checkout processes, along with many, many bookcarts. Now that the new checkin area has been constructed, the counter is downsizing. The rest of us only wish that we could achieve...

  • "To do" list for Week 4

    As the third week of renovation concludes, second floor is largely complete; at least, it's carpeted, painted, and tiled. Projects remaining on the upper floor include finishing the librarians' office and continuing work on the combined Reference and Circulating collection. It's a wonderful...

  • Halfway there, folks!

    With carpeting finished on the second floor and well underway on the first, it appears at this point that we're on schedule for that November 3rd re-opening. Of course, anything can happen in the next few weeks and we'll know better by the end of next week , but right now it's looking good...
