Take a Peek at Photos of Our Interior Renovation Project!

It’s been fun for us to see people using the new furniture located throughout the public spaces.
The comfy couch and chairs located next to the fireplace are really popular!
️️☑ Installation of the new flooring in the: meeting room, staff work spaces, kitchen, and storage room was completed today.
☑️ Replacement doors in both of the meeting room closets have been installed.
☑️ The beautiful oak mantel for the fireplace has been installed.
☑️ The beautiful see-thru electric fireplace is now in use.
☑️ Two walls have finished being pushed back.
The first one is located in the meeting room closet. This wall was pushed back into the staff area, to make room in the closet to store extra meeting room tables and chairs.
The other wall that was pushed back is in the storage hallway. This will allow for the relocation of one of the workspaces.
☑ Stainless steel self-retracting stepstools were installed under the sinks in each of the public restrooms. These will safely allow children to reach the soap dispensers and sink while washing their hands.
Thanks for all of your patience during this exciting renovation!

As you can see from the photos, it takes a LOT of stuff to run a busy library like ours.

We’re rapidly approaching WRAPPING UP Phase 1 of our interior renovation project and preparing for Phase 2.

✔️ In Phase 1 we’ve been tackling the public spaces.

✔️ Phase 2 will focus on the: staff work areas, meeting room, kitchen area, staff restroom, and storage areas.

A HUGE THANKS goes out to the City of Central City crew for helping us move everything out to the main areas of the library, in preparation for Phase 2. They were also a huge help when we had to move everything to the back, so all of our new flooring could be installed.

We’re also VERY THANKFUL for the volunteers that have been coming in to help our staff dust/straighten shelves, books, etc., so we’ll be able to open soon.
