Back when the new library building was built in 2000, a portion of the second floor was set aside as an unfinished “shell” space with anticipation that community growth would find us needing this space in about 20 years. The library’s district indeed has grown, and we are still walking on the original carpet in most of the building some 22 years later. It’s time to replace the carpet and furnish the shell space!

The Board and Library Administration have been saving money from each year’s budget in anticipation of this work, which will be in two phases in 2023. One chunk will hopefully occur from March to May, and the rest from Mid-August to November. The end result will combine all books for adults on the second floor and provide unique individual study areas for remote and freelance workers and students. The first floor will feature an improved teen area, give middle schoolers a place of their own, and provide new seating and collaborative spaces for all ages. Details about the project and the impact it will have on the availability of materials and study spaces will be posted here on this page as work progresses.

Current Status: PHASE 1 (March 13 - May 31)

The 2nd floor study tables may be limited as we conduct lighting work in the public areas. The study rooms and meeting rooms should remain accessible during Phase 1. The youth study rooms will be permanently closed. In the Fall we will have group study areas in the expanded teen and middle school spaces.

Study Rooms & Meeting Rooms are OPEN Youth and teens may reserve a second floor study room or walk in and check availability. A school ID, Photo ID or library card is needed to reserve a room.

Copier & Scanner are located on the 1st Floor

Computers are open. Laptops may be checked out on the 2nd floor but used anywhere in the library.

Below is a map of the 2nd floor during Phase 1, including where the collections are currently located.

Collections are being moved around on the 1st floor in anticipation of the rest of the remodeling project, which will commence in late August 2023. Please ask at a service desk if you need assistance in locating materials.
