CONSTRUCTION TIMELINE
the library WILL remain open during repairs
Books, furniture and shelving from the 3rd floor and part of the 2nd floor will be removed and stored during construction beginning in early April.  We will not have any access to older items in the adult fiction, non-fiction and young adult collections. However, new and popular items will still be available in the front portion of the library.  A portion of the children's room will remain open and we will have access to the entire juvenile collection at all times.  It may be noisy during the day.  We expect construction to end in late June.  We appreciate your patience and apologize for all inconvenience.
