Construction Update: All Walkways are Open

All walkways leading to the library are now open, including ramps. We will be concentrating on landscaping work next.



Construction Update: Entrance to the Library

The library can once again be entered from the front, and the temporary back entrance is now locked. However, there are now only two access points to the library from the front: there is an entrance using the east stairs on Park Ave. and there is a ramp that exits towards Village Court. The other stairs and ramp are still closed while work proceeds. As always we apologize for any inconvenience and ask that you contact us should you have any particular concerns or needs.



Performing Arts Video Collection

Did you know that we now have a video collection devoted specifically to the performing arts? You can find your favorite music, dance and theater dvds next to our new series videos, on the lower level. Thanks to the Friends of the Library for providing funds to help enhance this collection!



Construction Update: Temporary Entrance

As most of you know by now, there is extensive construction happening with the hardscape of the building (for more information on the project, see this front page item). Unfortunately, the front door will be inaccessible for one week starting Monday the 13th.

During the week of October 13th through October 20th you will need to enter and exit the library through the library's southeast emergency exit. This entrance can be reached by walking south on Village Court, turning left on the gravel path across Wyman Green, and then turning left onto the temporary plywood path that will take you to the door.

There will be signs outside the library to help you find this entrance, and we will provide home delivery if you are unable to access the building. We ask that you not return AV items to the bookdrop on the side of building. We apologize for this inconvenience and assure you that we have kept the time that the front door will be inaccessible down to a minimum.

Election Pin Display in October

As the election draws near, one of our patrons has graciously decided to share his extensive collection of election pins, buttons and other assorted election paraphernalia. Our front and back display cases will be housing this fascinating collection through the month of October. Come check it out!
