We would like to say "Thank You" for the support and patience we received from our patrons and community while we were under construction. The construction consisted of a new drop ceiling above and around the circulation desk. The drop tiles that were there are obsolete, so a new drop ceiling was installed. No more holes and water stains! The new roof is holding up beautifully and because of that we were able to replace ALL of the water-stained panels and all of the light fixtures cleaned throughout the entire library!
