While summer went flying by, hammers and drills and saws could frequently be heard at the library!¬† As a result, the library computer center is sporting a whole new look and can now accommodate 5 public access computer stations.¬† We are presently awaiting the arrival of a new desktop computer and new task chairs.¬† Our carpenter will soon return to begin renovations to the public restroom.
And….in case you haven’t already noticed, a brand new sign has sprung up on the front lawn.¬† Plans are in the works for new outside lighting as well.¬†
The above¬†was accomplished with Construction Challenge Grant funds awarded to Easton Library by the Southern Adirondack Library System.¬†
