Madison Central Library Prepares for Move to Temporary Facility

Planned Central Library relocation presents challenges for workers, patrons. (Wisconsin State Journal, 11/9/2011)

Excerpt:   As the closing of the Central Library looms, many library users are prepared to deal with slight inconveniences, knowing that a larger, more vibrant building will soon take its place.

Until then, however, Downtown patrons will have to go a few weeks without any library at all, followed by a year and a half in a temporary facility much smaller than what exists now. Patrons will only be able to browse the main collection online, and seating will be at a premium.

"It will be a challenge in terms of people who like to sit and read," said Carol Froistad, community services manager for the Central Library, which closes its doors at 6 p.m. Friday.

And the beat goes on.  (4/14/2010)
