One location which has already changed significantly is the place where the sturdy circulation desk once stood, where customers returned and checked out their materials. That is gone, and in its place one will find a more compact arrangement, where both the circulation staff, and the information staff will function. As a backdrop to these stations, there will be the mural on the wall, which the Friends of the Library, Little Falls Chapter, commissioned, as gift to the Library, to celebrate its 50th Anniversary. This is being moved from a location where one had to be informed that it existed, to one which makes it visually available to all. Additionally, there will be a wide screen monitor providing digital signage, which will inform all within the Library of the programs and activities available at Little Falls.

And, this blog would not be complete without reporting on the toilet facilities. Work continues on the remodeling of the bathrooms on the lower level. The old fittings have been removed, the foundation has been excavated, and new pipes laid where necessary. Masonry work is next on the list, and you will be informed of the progress as we evolve to completely new toilet facilities for all. We are getting there.
