What’s Up with Central Library

Work has begun on Central Library’s first major interior upgrades since the early 1990s.

That includes painting, carpeting, moving some shelving, installing more user-friendly desks and new signage. The goal is to give you better access to library materials and services in a more comfortable environment. We think you’ll like it.

We plan to keep disruptions to a minimum with the project completed sometime this fall. Please speak with staff if you need any assistance.

Because of the work, Central’s Quiet Study Room is needed as a staff/staging room and has to be closed to the public for the duration. We’re sorry for any inconvenience and hope patrons will use the many other designated quiet areas in the building.

Thanks for your patience and understanding and keep checking back for updates.

The Library thanks the County Department of Environmental Services for overseeing this project.

    I would love to see a schematic of the new arrangement for the library. Is it possible to post a PDF of the drawings?
