PSIP IV Complete, New Teen Space Open

Our latest renovation is complete and we invite you to come in and see the changes. Start with the renovated Friends of the Library bookstore, Secondhand Prose, then move on to the southeast corner and see the 6 small study rooms, then head over to the northeast corner and check out the new Teen Space and group study rooms. Our project finished early and under budget and will provide space for group projects, computer access, noise mitigation and additional seating. Celebrate the opening of the Teen Space with us on April 30, noon to 2:00 PM.
