It's starting to look real!

Some of the library staff had the opportunity to check in on progress upstairs yesterday. We're excited to see that most of the new walls are up and that it's becoming easier to envision the Learning Commons.

These will be small podcasting and recording rooms. 

The area that used to be behind the stacks, where the individual study desks were located. There will be a large conference-style room located along this wall. 

Offices are going in.

Looking between rooms-in-progress to the open area in the center (where the worker is standing). The former children's room may be seen in the background; this is where the Writing Center will be located in the fall.

And, very exciting: the new front desk has arrived!

Movin' On Up!

Not only is the inside of Reeves Memorial Library getting a facelift but our resident outside tenant, the groundhog, is also getting new digs (pun intended).

This is where it has lived for years.

And this is apparently its summer place.

Be it ever so humble there's no place like home.

Walls Are Going Up

As work continues on The Learning Commons the walls are being erected. Each day it's getting easier to envision our new home!

Open For Business

The library office has been open in The Reading Room. We now can offer some study/research space in the O'Hara Room. It will be open the same hours as the office: Monday-Thursday from 8:00--5:50 and Fridays from 8:00-4:50. The furniture is temporary but feel free to stop by and explore. Items can be checked out in The Reading Room.

Photo Friday!

A couple of us got a walkabout on the main level upstairs this afternoon. It's still pretty hard to envision how it's all going to look, but we're definitely getting closer!

The 100s & 200s used to be right about here
