Work focused on the first floor and included the following:
 
  • New flooring
  • Fresh paint
  • New furniture including tables, chairs and lounge seating
  • New combined information & check out desk with an Express Check Out machine
  • New seating area by windows to take advantage of natural light
  • Power outlets at all reader tables for customers to plug in
  • Designated stroller parking
  • New display spaces and fixtures
  • Space for on-going Friends book sale items
  • Computers, copiers and express computers consolidated in a single area for better service
  • Larger and more welcoming Teen Space featuring four MAC computers and additional seating
In addition, staff areas are being upgraded with new furniture, storage and work stations, locked equipment storage and improvements to the staff lounge. All spaces will meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements, including adequate circulation space.

The budget for this project was approximately $650,000.
