The issues that postponed the opening of the new cafe / library entrance have been resolved and we are set to open on Tuesday, October 31. On Monday night we will install the new staff service points, remove the old desk, and move a self-check from the circulation lobby to the new entrance area.
We will also be moving the Bestseller Express Fiction and Nonfiction into the circulation plaza. This is being done to free up shelving near the new entrance, but also as a pilot project for upcoming changes to the circulation plaza. We are testing out locations with some of our older metal shelving. If the placement doesn’t work we can easily move the collections and try other spots within the circulation plaza. If it is successful we will probably investigate new shelving with a similar footprint.
