There will be some very exciting changes happening in our department within the next few months! The computer and game computer/art table area will be undergoing a renovation to make better use of space.
An updated computer station unit will be installed; this will hold 8 computers--reservation sign up (when all computers are in use) and printing (color and black & white) will take place at our reference desk.
The game computer and art area will be expanded and separated from the internet computers by a waist high wall with a beautiful decorative acrylic panel attached to the ceiling to create separation and to allow air and light to flow. There also will be new slim-profile tables for the game computers and i-pad stations and new colorful chairs throughout. We will retire our "log cabin" tables and chairs and replace them with the low style of "bistro" table used in the Teen area of the AS Room. The delivery of furniture will take many weeks, but we should be ready to start Summer Reading with everything in place. (Oh my gosh, is it that time already?)
You may have already noticed the (permanent) migration of the Electronic Bulletin Board, which is now mounted on the wall behind our staff desk & gerbil tank. Thanks to all the staff who provided valuable input while the plans were being developed! We were able to start this project due to a generous donation from the Dream Makerz Foundation, and an anonymous donor. The remainder of the project will be paid for by funds raised at the April events.
We look forward to seeing the final product and hope you do too!
On our Facebook page this Thursday, we asked how you would renovate our gerbil tank... whatcha think?
