Changes have been made at the Grant County Library and the staff will host an open house Thursday, February 18, from 2 to 6 p.m. “Change is inevitable and many exciting changes have taken place here this past year,” stated library director Jody Carlson. “Please stop in and help us celebrate our new look.”
The library building, which was constructed in 1979, has been updated with fresh paint in some areas and additional lighting in others. A new circulation desk was installed using memorial money from Stanley Heath. The desk has built-in display areas and is handicap accessible. The community room now includes a large screen TV for viewing and for use in classroom settings.
New carpeting was installed, first in the community room and then throughout the entire library. The new carpeting presented the opportunity to rearrange furniture, computers, books, and movies. The library also now has handicap accessible front doors and drinking fountain.
Carlson said, “With the project complete, the layout has a feeling of more open space and updated fixtures.” “The Grant County Public Library belongs to the community. Stop in and celebrate our updates and see what we can do for you. Enjoy the library.”
