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.

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.
