Construction begins!

Construction of the quiet study room addition has begun.  The construction fence has been put up and heavy equipment has been brought onto the site.  The patio is in the process of being demolished.  As you will notice if you visit the branch (and we are open!!!), parking is now very limited.  Work will continue on the outside throughout the entire construction project.

Rearranging the space

The current Allwood Branch layout is one big open space.  As we are in the midst of our busiest time of the year, it can feel quite hectic as users walk around unseparated space.  The new layout will provide more definition for children, computer users, and those who need quiet study and work space.
