Big Changes at Central Library
Beginning this week, you will see many changes in the circulation area at the central library – changes that will help us be more efficient and serve you better.
A generous anonymous bequest allowed us to install a modern inventory system that will enable patrons to quickly and easily check out their own items. We will be creating three new, smaller checkout stations for patron use; the old checkout desk will be replaced with a smaller desk for two staff members and an open shelving area for patrons to pick up their own holds.
These changes will help us manage our ever-growing circulation – an increase of 14% last year.
Work will begin this week and be done in stages. We are aiming for completion in late December.
We’ll keep you informed of the progress by way of a page on our website.
Come visit and watch the changes.
