  • Why did the snake get on the elevator?

    Answer: To move up to the second floor for some fresh air! Rocksssanne , the library's ball python mascot, needed temporary relocation so she could avoid noxious fumes. The new epoxy surface for the first floor hallway was applied directly outside her home. Dale Ricklefs, library director, is graciously...

  • No tumbleweeds yet, though

    The library under renovation is a bit like the Old West. With offices being uprooted for carpeting and computers a rare commodity, library staffers are homesteadin' office space and stakin' out opportunities to go online and revise records, create reports, or whatever. Like many co-workers, Jane...

  • What a Wonky Wednesday...

    Currently, entire offices have been packed away into boxes and piled in the middle of the floor at various points, and large portions of the library are also sectioned off due to carpeting. Thus, today's main challenge is simply navigating on and between floors. We are also down to just three computers...

  • Miss Congeniality

    Obviously, we can't get by on our good looks at this point (see previous blog photos). Absolutely no one has viewed the piles of tile boxes, discarded floor coverings, and half-finished walls and exclaimed, "Love what you've done with the place!" At least we are confident of our redeeming...

  • It's Not a Blue Monday...

    It's a red one! Those of us who worked this morning saw an outside book drop that was full to the brim, but we're not seeing red about that. In fact, we appreciate the steady flow of items being returned while we're closed. Items returned during our closure help to reduce an overflow when...

  • The Round Rock Horror Picture Show (with lots of pictures)

    It's actually not that scary in here at all. In fact, we've got several treats for you today. To start off, here are the beginnings of the new inside drop boxes. One will be for audio/video material and the other for books, as is usual. Of course, they're not finished. That's just the...

  • Who needs a bookmobile?

    Our library materials are constantly on the move these days, with or without wheels. Carpet installation has commenced on second floor. That process, along with removal of tile in the Teen Room and continued demolition of walls on first floor, has prompted staff to dismantle displays and furniture, clear...

  • Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes

    Today we continued the reading of shelves. Essentially, this is the art of getting all the books in their proper order. Here's Mary and Elaine hard at work. Today also saw the emptying of offices in preparation for some walls that are scheduled for demolition very soon. Here's J.D. and David...

  • 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...

  • 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...
