We’re Breaking Eggs at the Delaware (Main) Library

IMG_20131118_104307_851 IMG_20131118_104324_202You know the expression that you have to break some eggs to make an omelet.  Well, we’re breaking eggs at the Library to improve the function and look of the Main Branch.

The egg breaking will be going on for a few weeks, and when you visit, you may occasionally find there are parts of the collection inaccessible to customers.  For example, we will be closing the computer room on Thursday and Friday, November 21 & 22, to move some shelves, reposition the computers, and change some technology.  You might want to consider visiting the Powell, Ostrander or Orange Branch to use their Internet computers, though.

I apologize for any inconvenience these renovations may cause, but I think you will be delighted with the finished product.

Thanks for your patience and understanding, and if you can’t find what you’re looking for when you visit the Library, please ask one of the staff members.  We’ll be happy to help you!

Ostrander Branch shows off!

Please join us at an open house on Saturday, November 16 from 2:00-4:00 at the Delaware County District Library’s Ostrander Branch, to see the renovations and Captureimprovements recently made.  As part of our campaign promises, we pledged to update the Library’s facilities, making them more functional and contemporary.  We began fulfilling this pledge with the opening of the Orange Branch in 2011, continuing the updates earlier in 2013 with the extensive renovations at the Powell Branch.  The renovations at the Ostrander Branch were completed earlier this month, and the Delaware (Main) Library will begin its renovation project next month.

The renovations at Ostrander reorganized the flow of the branch, to make Library materials more accessible.  We also moved the Internet computers to make them easier to use, and created a business center as well.  New carpet and paint add a vibrant and contemporary feel to the branch.  I think you will be delightfully surprised with the changes.

The Open House at Ostrander will feature self guided tours and refreshments.

Hope to see you there!

Mary Jane Santos, Director

Renovations at the Powell Branch underway

In keeping with our campaign promises, we have begun the renovation at the Library’s Powell Branch.  The plans for the renovations are exciting, and they will greatly improve the functionality of the branch, allowing for more room for kids and story times, more efficiency including self-check-out and self-pickup of holds, a dedicated computer room, space carved out for quiet study, and a general face lift for the 20 year old building, including new carpet and fresh paint.

As the construction occurs, it may be necessary to close the Branch for your safety and the safety of our staff.  We will give you as much notice as possible when closures will occur, and please remember that other Library locations at Delaware, Orange and Ostrander are unaffected by the renovations and will remain open.

I apologize in advance for any inconvenience that closing the Powell Branch may cause you, but I promise that you will be delighted and excited when the project is completed in early 2013!
