Link to September 4 Racine Journal-Times article, "Pardon our dust: Library patrons put up with renovation".
Excerpt: Geraldine Fields comes to the Racine Public Library two to three times a week to use the computer because she doesn't have one at home.
Fields, 41, of Racine, was one of several waiting Saturday morning to use one of the nine computers in the first floor atrium of the library while the second floor is closed for a 12-week renovation, which reduced the total number of available computers from 37 to 16.
During the ongoing construction, Fields said she'll probably come once a week because of the inconvenience.
"I'll probably be bored," the homemaker said, now that she won't be checking social and entertainment sites as often.
Saturday was the first weekend since the second floor of the library, 75 Seventh St., closed Thursday for renovation, including replacing the decaying carpet and remodeling the floor.
