Come relax in the library

I have been doing a lot of reading lately on library renovations.  Our library was built in the 1970s, and much of it still remains the same, including the carpeting and furniture.  Slowly, we are working on doing some renovation.  Stage one of our library renovation occurred about four years ago when we built a computer lab.  Stage two is now currently underway as we begin to bring in new furniture and replace some of the old stuff. 

About a week ago, two new couches arrived.  The response from students and staff has been overwhelming. It is immediate go-to place for our students who want to just read quietly or complete homework. 

My book club even held our last meeting in this area.

What does phase three look like?  I have many ideas- paint, new carpeting, a mural created by the art club, a charging station, and more comfy couches!  The 21st century library should be a welcoming, inviting space. Thanks for all the enthusiasm that you have shared as we work to make that happen.
