McArthur is renovating…like starting this month. We will be finishing the gorgeous front rooms and overhauling the existing 2nd floor spaces to create dedicated spaces for teens as well as local history/genealogy. The history-local history-genealogy area will live in the back end of the annex area, and it will be wonderful to finally collate these resources. Additionally, and the thing I am most excited about is that we will also be installing secure (read: locked) condensed shelving in this area for the Special Collections materials. This includes all the archival material which is now housed all over the library (read: impossible to locate) and will greatly improve access to these collections–which is what it’s all about. Read the full scoop and see cool pictures from Dora (our fab Director) here.
