NEW SPACES. NEW POSSIBILITIES.
Come today to explore the newly-remodeled main floor and mezzanine! We’re excited to share the exciting changes that have happened at the Library over the last few months. The addition of more study rooms, a new media lab, and rooms for teens and for quiet reading, along with wider shelving aisles and a ramp to the mezzanine, all provide more usable space and enable us to better serve our community.
And save the date for the Grand Re-opening on Friday, May 29 from 4pm-8pm.
