Big Changes At Downtown Library

Posted by miriam on

If you’ve visited the downtown library in the past week you will have seen big changes underway at our West entrance (on E Street).  The desk in the lobby has closed to  make way for new, improved shelves for requested materials. You will now find all of your holds here including books, DVDs, and Link+ items.

You will also find plenty of self check machines in the lobby, so if you’re hoping to make a quick dash in to pick up something you’ve requested, you’ll be in and out in just moments.

Don’t worry, no one is losing their jobs and we’re all still here to help with everything from placing holds and paying fines, to finding your next great read. Now you’ll just come to see us at either the children’s room desk or at the main desk upstairs.

We hope to see you soon!
