What You Can Expect During Renovation

Library Hours

  • Our goal is to maintain regular hours throughout the project.
  • If we need to modify hours during the construction, we will keep you updated via our website.

Parking

  • The parking lot and drive-through book drops will be open.
  • However, a number of spaces will be taken up by construction-related storage and equipment.

Meeting Spaces

  • Unfortunately, the first and third floor meeting rooms will not be available during construction.

Library Collections

  • Collections will be moving around to accommodate construction.
  • Some items may be stored offsite and access will be limited.
  • If you can’t find what you are looking for, please ask one of our staff members. We are here to help!
  • We are expanding our online collection of books, music and videos. These resources are available 24/7—with no dust or noise.

Library Programming

  • We will continue to offer programming for kids, adults and teens.
  • Some programs will be on hiatus or held offsite during construction.
  • We are planning on several “pop-up”programs during the summer. Stay tuned for more information.

Media Lab/Technology

  • Computers, copiers, printers and the scan/fax stations will be available but moving around to accommodate construction.
  • While we are building a new, larger Media Lab, there will be limited access to this equipment.

Book/Media Drops

  • The drive-through book drop will be open.
  • The first floor drop may close during Phase 3.
