Signs of Improvement

Shelving Being InstalledYou may have noticed that there has been quite the activity with our collection upstairs. That’s because we are currently shifting our collection. After some deep pondering the branch decided that we could create a better browsing experience for you, our customers.

With the decision came the task of moving a whole bunch of books around, but it will be worth it for you, our customers. So thank you for bearing with us. If you need any help finding a book during this transitional phase (or any other time) then please don’t hesitate asking for our assistance. We expect everything to be back to normal by the end of next week.
