Construction almost done…

Hughes Library Renovations Underway:
We are almost done!

Renovations at the main Hughes Library will be wrapping up in the next two weeks. The second floor work is now complete. We are putting the finishing touches on the new first floor cafe and will open when all the inspections and licensing is complete. Additionally, we replaced the carpeting in the Children’s department and added a fresh coat of paint. The department has reopened and they are ready for a busy fall season.

Thanks to a generous grant from the Hughes Foundation and the support of many generous donors during our centennial year, we made much needed improvements to the main library, including:

  • Redesigning the second floor computer lab. Done!
  • Adding restrooms to the second floor. Done!
  • Adding study rooms and new meeting spaces to the second floor. Done!
  • Adding a comfortable adult reading area on the second floor. Done!
  • Adding a cafe to the Friends bookstore area on the first floor. Almost done.
  • Re-carpeting the Youth Services department on the first floor. Done!

Keep an eye out for the grand opening of the new Library Cafe, and thank you for your patience and support!
