Library upgrades

November 11th, 2008

First, sorry for the lack of posts, things have been crazy busy. I hate to go so long in between posts but I guess it happens sometimes.
So I noticed recently that the library has a new sign, or lettering and lamps by the front door. ???? ?????? ??????
I also noticed they got some new book return bins. ????? ?????? ???????   I remember the old ones were really rusty and beat up looking, so these are a nice improvement.

The third thing I noticed was new chairs and tables in the lobby.

I think this looks great, it almost seems like they should serve coffee 🙂  

These upgrades are a welcome sight considering the downgrades in downtown like the loss of Fabric Place and the continuously crumbling steps at the Memorial Building.


  1. Michelle, THANKS! I love the pictures.

    I agree, they should definitely serve coffee at those tables. Can you imagine? They’d have a fit if they had to serve coffee and espresso drinks on top of everything else that they have to do there: check out books, restock shelves, collect fines, call the police when the homeless sex offenders act up. . . .

  2. My son works at the library and I actually THINK the coffee thing is being considered. You should see the library in Springfield, Missouri. Springfield is a city of about 160,000…. it has a COFFEE SHOP, gift shop and huge state-of-the-art computer area. I love to hit that library when I visit my daughter out there. Stuff like that (coffee shops in the library, etc.) is the trend of the future!

  3. Actually, folks are now allowed to bring in their own cofee, as long as they keep it in the areas with the tables, and there is a Dunkin Donuts practically across the street. Bring your laptop! We have free wireless too!

    And don’t forget to emntion those nifty new doors!
