Home Stretch

Hooray!!  We are in the last weeks of our refresh, with our reopening scheduled for Saturday April 8 at 10:00 AM. During the past few weeks, we have seen most of our furniture delivered, the restrooms finished up on the lower level, the wood in our beautiful ceiling stained a rich mahogany color, new shelf endpanels installed, and much more.
Childrens Area

The Davis staff will be recalled to the library on Monday, March 13, and then our work really begins! We have boxes and boxes of materials that were removed and stored when the refresh process began.  All of these materials need to be located in their new homes, and all of the materials that were bought for us while we were closed need to be shelved also. If you could peek inside Davis you would see carts and carts of brand new books waiting to be taken home by happy customers.

Laptop/study space
Our new computer tables have been delivered, and the MCPL Technology Management staff is busy reinstalling the public PCs and making sure everything is working correctly. We also have laptop counters in the large study room. Other technology that will be in place and is new to Davis are Go! Kits for children, laptops that can be borrowed for use in the library, and an assistive technology workstation that includes a device that can magnify and read text on a page in a number of different languages.
Cute Pony Chair

Of course we will still have our great selection of fiction and nonfiction materials, and our wonderful staff members will be ready and willing to help with our new services, help you locate the resources you need, or just recommend a great read.

We hope to see all of our faithful customers at our opening ceremony on April 8 to help us celebrate this great event!!
