Moving In

Oh my! Oh my! Oh my! There is one excited person sitting at the keyboard typing this little blog. It won't be long now until my workplace is ready to be opened to the public once more after nearly 18 months of extensive remodeling. During this time most of our collection has been stored in a warehouse, with the public using a storefront mini library (in a former Tuesday Morning retail store) as the place to check out materials and browse through a reduced selection of books, CD's and DVD's.
And now our books are awaiting unwrapping from their sealed moving carts...it feels like a Christmas of sorts!
All around the library are wonderful light fixtures. Different areas feature different, creative designs.
What do I find particularly exciting in the Children's area? Kid-sized pieces of furniture with a touch of whimsy like this winding caterpillar table. Picture Ellie standing up here and her Gramma nearby waiting to read her a story on a comfy couch in a cozy nook space perfect for cuddling up to share a story or two.
I think our patrons are really going to love our new library --- I certainly do!

Thanks for your comments on Facebook, dear friends! I notice most of you are my co-workers!

I agree! The library is light and welcoming, smiles are evident. It was worth the wait. Our biggest challenge, Deb? Learning the new phones: help.

I think we will need a LOT of help, Patricia. Maybe no one will call on Tuesday nights...
