Central Resource Library Remodel Progress

Have you been wondering how construction is going at Central? Here’s a sneak peek at some of the new and improved features you’ll find when the Central Resource Library reopens this spring.

Our drive-up exterior book drop will reopen with the addition of a new drive-thru holds pickup window. You’ll be able to return your materials and pick up your available holds in one spot without leaving your vehicle! Check out the slideshow to see how this addition has progressed over the last few months.

Crews have also been hard at work creating a brand-new Kids area, in the southeast corner of the building. In the slideshow photos, you can see the progress as the new storytime room (at the back of the area pictured) is framed, drywalled, and painted. You can also see the large new windows allowing for increased natural light and cheerful spots to page through a book or two with your little ones. Finally, catch a glimpse at the colorful tile in the new Kids restroom.

You’ll find answers to many common questions about this project in our Construction FAQ, which also features a Fly-Through video rendering of the project. We’re looking forward to welcoming you back to a fully open Central!
