Revised Central Second Floor Takes Shape

Ask-a-Librarian Now Closer to the Collection

The Central Library renovation project isn’t getting the summer off.

With the start of July, reference staff and materials have moved to the south side of the building while magazines have a new home on the north side. The goal is improved service and simplified walking patterns across the second floor.

The always popular bank of public computers is staying right where it’s been but you should soon find it easier to sign in and get assistance from a nearby, soon-to-be-installed help desk.

We’re also trying some new, easy-to-read signs regarding quiet zones in the building. Let us know what you think.Quiet Zones

Thanks for continuing to “pardon our dust” as the project moves forward. As always, don’t hesitate to ask Library staff and volunteers for assistance.
