New Exciting Changes-copyright Pixelbliss/ As we begin a new fiscal year, we can expect to see some new and exciting changes at our library. Some of these changes include:

  • Replace current copy machines with two new state-of-the art multifunctional machines. These machines will offer copying, printing, faxing and scanning capabilities. Users will also be able to print from the library Wi-Fi to these copiers, as well as schedule print jobs from home computers.
  • New windows will be installed on the original library building, making the building more energy-efficient.
  • The exterior of the building will get a facelift with a fresh coat of paint.
  • The Lending Services area will be reconfigured to better accommodate the express check stations and allow for better traffic flow in that area.
  • A payment module will be added to all express-check machines, making it possible to pay fines by credit card or Apple Pay.
  • Two additional study rooms are scheduled for construction on the main level.
  • Some of the furniture will be replaced with new more comfortable pieces.

Some of these projects may require interruption to service in various parts of the library. We will do our best to post in advance when we know what areas will be temporarily closed to the public and for how long. Thank you in advance for your patience and, as always, if you have any questions, feel free to contact Library Director Barbara Bailey by phone at 860-652-7717 or by email at
