  • Library Construction

    During the next few weeks, several library restrooms will be remodeled.

    We expect minimal disruption to library services, but there might be occasional construction-related noise as well as the occasional presence of construction materials.

    We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

    Construction should be complete by July, 2014.
