East's Temporary Location: Open for Business!

| No TrackBacks

The temporary location of the East Library at 2430 N. Murray Ave. is open for business!

eastflex.jpgThe East Library staff worked hard over the last week to get our temporary space ready! It was a long week. Not only did we have to move the library books and DVDs, we also had to set up our office space, and organize everything from magazines to encyclopedias to staple removers. Our skilled trades staff worked hard as well, and the IT staff set up our computers and made sure everything works the way it should.

We had a great opening this morning. Mayor Tom Barrett officially unlocked the door, and he was our official first patron. Alderman Nik Kovac also attended the opening and checked out some books. Many members of the local media were there to document the event, so you may spot us on the evening news, or hear about us on public radio!

In addition, we have re-opened East Library as a holds pick-up location, so we expect our holds shelf to get much bigger very soon. It's a small space, but we're proud of how it turned out, and we look forward to seeing our patrons use the temporary library.
