Library first-floor construction planned for May 10-12

The Central Library’s first floor will be closed Saturday-Monday, May 10-12, for construction and reopen Tuesday, May 13. A covered corridor from the entrance doors to the elevator will allow visitors to pass through the construction zone safely and get to other floors.

The first floor will close for the summer for various improvements, including fire sprinklers, and new flooring and ceiling tiles in the lobby and circulation/reference areas. New turnstiles and glass walls to funnel visitors to the turnstiles will be installed. The old Help Desk space will become a makerspace.
