They were working on this the whole time we lived here. We WERE a bit disappointed with the lack of technology (online reservations, online account management) when we were here. They said they were upgrading at the new library and wow have they ever! It's amazing. On top of that they have a cafe, a teen room, kids room, whole floor of fiction and another for non-fiction, cool nooks to sit and read, and a huge community room.
I LOVE the way they've merged old and new in restoring this old department building and turning it into an amazing place to enjoy. Here are a couple of photos I found on the web...if we get back down there (we can't check things out so we would go just soak it up because we're library geeks) I'll take more photos.
Glass bricks from the original building were used here and there and the glow you see here is sunlight in the Teen room. Ivey told us today they bring therapy dogs in for kids to read too...and I think this is a great idea, one I need to explore for our struggling reader. They read, the dog loves them and doesn't laugh....
Living all of life before the face of God...
