Yes, we’re bookin’ it!December 2, 2009
At last night’s city council meeting, the library’s temporary relocation plans were approved. The library will be moving to the former Digistar building on Janesville Avenue during the renovation and expansion project. Making this move allows the construction to happen in the shortest possible time and provides for the safety and security of patrons, staff, and equipment.
The library will be occupying the lower level of the building closest to Janesville Avenue. There will be ample parking and enough space to operate the library for the 10-12 months of our project. We will have a handicapped entrance around the back of the building and a book return installed in the parking lot. We will not have meeting room availability during this time.
We will do our best to make our temporary home a place people will feel comfortable using so that we can operate with minimal disruption. We appreciate your flexibility and understanding while we make this transition.
We anticipate being closed approximately two weeks to move into the new location and one to two weeks to move back into the finished library.
Between now and then we will be culling through our inventory, making decisions on what goes and what gets sold. Watch for unbelievable selection at our upcoming book sales along with really great deals. The next book sale is Saturday, December 5th from 9:30 to Noon. The one after that is slated for Saturday, January 16th. Additionally, we will be selling items on a cart in the library during the hours the library is open.
Stay tuned for more information as we develop more concrete plans and dates.
