The first contractors arrived on the job this bright winter morning to begin work on the new drive-up service window. The window will make it easier and safer for patrons who would like a contact-free pickup option for their library materials.
Part of the existing front porch will be enclosed to create the window and an adjoining workroom. Also, the library’s main entry doors will be turned to face the walkway and an overhang will be added to cover the sidewalk from the parking lot to the doors, giving everyone more convenient access.
When construction is completed, currently slated for May 2021, the drive-up window will allow the library to safely serve more people, more efficiently — even after the pandemic is over.
Until the new window opens, the library continues to offer curbside pickup service at a temporary location at the back of the building. As you enter the parking lot from Olde Half Day Road, keep to the right and follow the signs to the new pickup point.
