So what's the deal with plastic sheeting and metal frames in the library?
Well, Friends, almost 30 years ago Memorial Hall Library constructed a much needed addition. Part of this addition was to be a roof deck on the main floor opposite the reference area. It was never completed. However, by late Spring that piece of the renovation will finally be complete.
The roof deck will let you step outside and enjoy a beautiful day even while you're industriously researching something of the utmost importance. It will also provide several more seats and a place to enjoy a cool drink or hot, if you prefer, while enjoying the view.
And by the way, your buddies at the Friends of the Library helped with the funding. Which causes me to wonder, is it time to change the name of the Friends of the Library to something more contemporary like, the Buds of The Library, or maybe the Library Homies, or even Library BFFs. Wait, you'll like this, the Library Peeps. But I digress-which is what you can do with a blog.
Below are some photos of the roof deck construction and a few graphics which were drawn by the library staff.
Below is a view from the Teen Room where the entrance to the deck is located.
