Little Falls Construction and Refresh Updates, Keeping You Informed!

Construction activity related to the refresh continues to be the topic of conversation for our blog this week. The crew working on the roof are at the stage where they are now adding the fascia to the sides of the roof overhang, and they are also installing the gutters and the downspouts around the building. These are essential to channel the water runoff from the roof away from the building.

The parking spaces in the branch parking lot have been re-striped, and those reserved for “accessible” parking are now clearly visible, since the international symbol of accessibility is now painted in the middle of each space.

New furniture for the branch is beginning to arrive. The first seating to be delivered was the Arcadia lounge chairs for the main library area, just across from the combined circulation and information desk.  In the coming days and weeks, all the remaining pieces of furniture will be received and placed in their respective areas. We will provide a “sneak peek” preview of what awaits you, our customers,when all the furniture is in place.  The staff workroom is also a location where new furniture is being placed.

The combined circulation and information desk is presently being assembled. Additional details will be provided when it is fully assembled and the equipment positioned.

Please remember that the Little Falls Literary Salon will meet at the Chevy Chase branch on Wednesday April 26, 2017, 11:00 am–12:30 pm to discuss the book, When the Moon Is Low, by Nadia Hashimi. This will be the Literary Salon’s second adult book discussion for the 2017 spring series, entitled “Immigrants and Refugees.” Copies may still be available for borrowing at the Chevy Chase branch.

The Little Falls Conversation Club continues to meet at the Fourth Presbyterian Church, 5500 River Road, Bethesda, Md, 20816, on Fridays, from 10:15 a.m. – 12:00 noon.

Check back soon for more news about the refresh activity.
