We are making major changes inside the library. All of the computers (except 2) in the circulation area are being moved upstairs into reference. The empty space left by this move will become the new teen area with teen books and cool teen furniture and a Mac computer. The empty space left by the teen area in youth services will become an interactive learning area for young children. On the fourth floor, the area where the bound periodicals are shelved will become a quiet reading area with club chairs and tables. The small business area will become two study rooms. One will accommodate two people around a table. The other one will include a media center with a 42″ screen and technology that will allow up to four laptop users to switch back and forth to the screen for collaborative work. We hope to have everything in place by Thanksgiving. These changes are possible because of donations in memory of Alice Greene Reed and donations from the Friends of the Library Endowment fund.
