Paint and carpet odors

As we begin painting and carpeting, some patrons may complain about fumes.  Both the paint and the carpet are low VOC (volatile organic compounds).  Whilte the paint and carpet will smell to some degree, they comply with government standards for minimum toxocity - so are very safe.

The vending machines are being removed in the next few days.  They will be returned when the construction is completed. 

The Quiet Study area will be unavailable effective Monday January 23.  Signs will be posted asap.

Contractors in building

Over the next few months numerous contractors and subcontractors will be in the building.  Our contract requires that they stop at the info desk and let someone know they are in the building.  If they ask for me directly please let me know, otherwise you can just thank them and let them do what they need to do.

Map of the stacks

Anna has created a map of the temporary stacks for our patrons who need them. Copies are available at the info desk and in the stacks.

As you have seen, shifting has begun in the stacks, in preparation for taking down shelves. Starting at the east wall back stacks:Adult NF, followed by Careers/Civil service/literacy, Bios, Travel, Consumer Reports, Short stories, and newspapers.  Teen/fiction shifting to follow.  Please take the time to orientate yourselves to the new arrangements. Temp. location signs will be posted on the endcaps (no dewey numbers, just subject areas), and the purple signs are being removed. Additional signage will be alerting patrons about the remodel, and we will also be preparing some FAQ's and talking points for staff to provide to patrons. Also there will be info on both TV's, an article on the website, and posting on Facebook.
