Things are Bright at Little Falls

Another two weeks at the Little Falls Library brings more updates to our journey to reopen the library! The first update I would like to share is that we have a general timeline for the Little Falls Library to reopen. We hope to reopen in late July or early August. Our staff was able to return to the branch this week, and we'll be assessing the work needed to reopen the library. Once this is done, there will be a concrete date announced. Thank you for continuing to bear with us and support us as we make the library an even better part of Montgomery County Public Libraries.

This week was filled with construction as the lighting installers worked hard to install all of our new fixtures. Our areas with lower ceilings: childrens, teen, and audiobooks / DVDs, all got gorgeous embedded lights in the ceiling. It really brightens up the whole area, and it will make it much more welcoming, attractive, and easy to find what you are looking for!

Our higher ceilings are getting  more efficient and attractive lights compared to the previous wide, older rectangular florescent lights. These new lights have a much lower profile, which means that the lovely view from our windows is more visible and entrancing than ever.

In other news, painters were on site painting the exterior of the building, and it is looking fabulous. The new coat of paint does wonders to restore the wear and tear of time, and it has been exciting to see how different the library looks from the beginning of each day to its end.

Some of our older shelving in the quiet study room has been removed to make room for new, attractive shelves, and we could not be happier! 

I hope you'll continue to follow this blog as we draw closer to the opening, and thank you for all of your support for Montgomery County Public Libraries--where the County reads, where the County meets, where the County learns!
