Come early and bring your preschoolers and toddlers to a construction-themed story time featuring construction workers in their vests and hard hats from 11 to 11:30 a.m.

After 12 years of heavy use, the interior was improved to support the changing ways that patrons are using libraries. Patrons say they want quiet study spaces, areas where they can use a multitude of devices and collaborate with others, and spaces where they can sit with their children to read or use technology. The changes were designed to make it easier for patrons to interact with one another, create flexible, open, welcoming spaces and improve access to technology.

Improvements included adding a laptop bar in the teen area, combining service desks, increasing seating options, adding electrical outlets to tables, meeting room upgrades and repositioning the public computers to reduce glare. The worn carpet in the branch also was replaced. An indoor-outdoor boulder in the children's area was removed due to ongoing moisture problems and moved across the street to a parcel designated to become a community park.
NotesLibrary events and programs are free and everyone is welcome. Registration is not required.

Free parking available on street and in garage.
