Lights and the Books on CD

I am visually impaired, please put brighter lights in the meeting room. I couldn't see the books on CD.

During the construction, we are temporarily housing our books on CD, Playways and Romance paperbacks in our meeting room. As of today, we've changed all the bulbs to increase the brightness as best we can and are investigating other lighting possibilities. If all goes as planned, those collections will be moved into their permanent and well lit  locations before the end of June. Thank you for your patience while we make major changes to our facilities.

Staff Kudos

The staff here are doing a great job. Keep up the good work.

Thank you!

Yoga Classes

Why not have ongoing Yoga classes?

We like to offer a wide diversity of programs. Yoga will always have a place in our schedule, but an ongoing class would limit other offerings we could make during the same time period.

Sunday Programs

More Sunday adult entertainment in the meeting room. Used to be much more. I look forward to it.

The good news is that we have several great weekend programs coming up.  Please check our newsletter and above 'Events' tab to learn more about the concerts and performances you can look forward to in the coming months.

Director’s Report to the Board of Trustees for March

 1. AV Project

The AV Project is hitting on all cylinders.  The distressed carpet areas in the reference area have been addressed by putting matching replacement tiles in the place of the tiles that were not replaced when new carpeting was laid on the 1st floor a few years ago. 

Almost all of the furniture has been received by the Children’s Department.  Unfortunately some of it will have to be replaced because it was damaged in transit.  All of the children’s DVDs and CDs have been reprocessed for selection and circulation from Children’s Department shelving.

The new shelving for the DVDs and CDs in the adult services area is due for delivery and installation by the time of the Board meeting.  

The electrician has installed the Ethernet cable in the circulation area.  This means that the self-checkout machine will be able to connect to the circulation system.  Once the installation of the machine is complete the connection will permit the self-checkout of all items from the new terminal.

Unattended Bags and Drinks

Your staff should be more concerned when patrons leave large bags unattended. Also, no beverages should be allowed.

Unattended bags can be concerning. Our staff strives to remind everyone not to leave any of their belongings behind. This is a public space with all that entails.  Currently, only covered beverages are allowed such as bottles of water.
