About the Renovation
The Library Board has approved plans to renovate the Library. Construction is set to begin on October 5, 2020. The current building was built in 1972 and expanded to its current floorplan in 1991. Since then, aside from some remodeling in 2008, we havenít done much to improve the functional and aesthetic layout of the building. As a result, we have a good deal of underutilized space that we want to put to better use. The renovation will result in more public space and better organized staff space. A few highlights of the new layout include larger programming rooms, more study rooms, a cafe; area with vending machines, better seating, more outlets for personal electronics, and so much more. If you would like a more detailed view, look at our current architectís rendering. Pleae note that this does not reperesent the final version and is still subject to change.
In preparation of the upcoming renovation, the Library will be shifting to curbside pickup service only starting Monday, September 14. Our hours will be Monday through Friday 10 am to 6 pm and Saturday 10 am to 2 pm. We will remain closed on Sundays.
During the renovation, we will document it progress on our website, keeping you updated with current information, photos, and more. Part of the website will be an FAQs where we will have answers to the most frequently asked questions.
