Beginning in January 2015, the library will embark on phase two of a renovation project to update the building, make the library accessible to all users and to fulfill our core values of Relevance, Access, Integrity and Leadership. Phase II will include a complete renovation of the public restrooms located in the lobby with new tile and fixtures, making them ADA compliant. During this phase of the construction, patrons will be asked to use the restrooms located in the Children's Library. The Cafe will be inaccessible, as well as the main doors of the Community Room. While adults might be interested in the details of the project, kids will also have questions, and we've compiled a list of recommendations of some construction themed books.
Demolition by Sally Sutton ; illustrated by Brian Lovelock
Sometimes you have to get rid of the old to make way for the new, and that is shown here through the use of numerous sound effects. Don't forget the last page, where the machines and their jobs are identified.
Job site by Nathan Clement
Nathan Clement's brightly colored illustrations belie the dust and dirt that is usually found on a job site, but each machine has a task that's portrayed in sparse and easy to explain text.
The Hat by Jan Brett
While Jan Brett’s The Mitten is more well-known, don’t miss this equally entertaining story. Brett’s signature illustrations relay the trouble Hedgie the hedgehog faces when he gets stuck in a discovered hat.
The Mitten by Jim Aylesworth
Jim Aylesworth’s rhyming retelling of the tale is complemented by Barbara McClintock’s expressive characters.
Duck Sock Hop by Jane Kohuth
