Library Lobby Reopens!

After 3 weeks (and a day), we have reopened the regular front entrance and lobby for the library this morning! We appreciate all of your patience with us, as we used a side door as the main entrance for the library during our renovations. This enabled us to give our contractors full access to the […]

Interior Renovations Underway

If you have visited the library in the past couple of weeks, you have already seen that we have begun our interior renovations in the lobby area. Our project will intensify over the next few weeks, with contractors coming into the lobby to do work with the electrical, walls, and flooring. Therefore, beginning on Monday, […]

Thank you for your patience

As many of you probably know, we had to close the Library on Monday & Tuesday of this week because we did not have any power! The problem was with a DTE transformer, and our power went out just before 9am on Monday morning, 7/22. Partial power was restored by this morning, Wednesday 7/24, and […]
