We do not yet have a construction schedule, but anticipate work to begin in November and be complete by the end of the fiscal year. We plan to keep the library open during the project, but the children’s area will likely be closed for several months. We will be setting up a small children’s collection near the new adult books on the 1st floor and will be taking some children’s programs to other locations. Adult media collections will be relocated to the 2nd floor.
The Visual Arts Committee has selected artwork for the glass wall leading into the new children’s area. This was approved unanimously by the City Council at their October 3 meeting. You can read the staff report and drawings of the art here (see: item 4.3):
