Red Carpet, Business Center & Main Corridor
Large print books and the Business Center are temporarily located in the Learning Center, across from the Holds Room, while the Red Carpet space is being remodeled. Other items, such as games and instruments, that were also located in Red Carpet can still be checked out. Just browse our online catalog and ask a staff member to get the item for you to check out. The remodeled Red Carpet area will have reconfigured shelving to make it easier to find the Large Print items you want. The Business Center will be moved to a larger area where the customer service desk is currently located. These changes are planned to be completed in spring 2019.
Construction is under way on the library’s circulation plaza, the main lobby that includes the customer service desk and checkout kiosks. Bestseller Express and DVD Express items have been moved into the middle of the New Books and Media Room near the computers during construction. The customer service desk is temporarily located on the west side of the circulation lobby. The flooring will also be replaced in the library entrance, circulation plaza and main hallways. This work is scheduled to be completed in spring 2019.
Learning Center and Make-It Lab
The Learning Center will be remodeled and rearranged in spring 2019. This will allow the space to be used for a variety of learning experiences for people of all ages. The Make-It Lab will also be moved from its current location in the northwest corner of the New Books and Media Room to an area next to the new Learning Center. The new Make-It Lab will feature better soundproofing, software and equipment. Construction is planned to be completed in summer 2019.
Claire’s Courtyard (Courtyard and Café Expansion)
This exciting project is being funded entirely by private donations raised by the Library Foundation, and is thanks primarily to a generous donation from Dr. Glenn Swogger and the Redbud Foundation. The name Claire’s Courtyard is in honor Dr. Swogger’s late wife Claire.
