Phase 1 Down and Two to Go


Phase 2 Starts Week of August 6

Renovation 2018 is on target for completion within the six to eight month time frame originally projected. Phase 1 has been completed and Phase 2 is well underway. While the Library’s “new look” is starting to take shape, some elements including furniture and the Quiet Room fireplace won’t be in place until all the collections are housed in their permanent home at the end of Phase 3. Our staff and the construction company are working to keep inconvenience to a minimum. In the end we know it will be worth it.
