Bright new carpet!
Over the last several weeks we have been excited to see some pops of color added to the white canvas of the Davis interior space. Our carpet has been laid in the main library and children's area, and it adds some real eye appeal to the space! There are a few different patterns in the same line, and the designer has used them to draw customers through the library and to delineate spaces. The picture here shows a pattern used in the children's room. We used carpet tiles instead of broadloom carpet so that if there is damage or severe staining in the future, sections can be easily replaced.

The first floor restrooms are completely tiled, and the flooring and fixtures are in. We are just waiting for the partitions and a few accessories like the hand dryers (oh, and the doors) and those spaces will be finished up. Work will then begin in the lower level restrooms. The restrooms were staged so that our partner organization, the KID Museum, has access to restrooms for their  young customers throughout the Davis refresh project.

Roofing work.
The complex roof replacement project is in its final demolition phase.  Because the roof at Davis is a flat one, demolition is more complicated than it might be on a regular pitched roof.   The workers are moving across the surface removing all of the old materials.  As one worker inside the building says, they sound like reindeer up on the roof!

We wish all of our customers a happy holiday season.  If you are thinking of a new tablet or Kindle as a gift for someone on your list, be sure to let them know that with a Montgomery County library card, they can download books, music, magazines and so much more for free from MCPL.  That's just like an extra gift that lasts the year round.
