Excerpt: Forty years ago, when the library moved from the old Carnegie building to the new facility on Lake Street, then director Donald Best hoped for 100 patrons a day.
Today, 600 people a day is considered slow.
"That’s why we needed to redo the bathrooms," [co-director Cathy] Tacoma continued. "They were the biggest thing people complained about. And they smelled."
Other improvements in the latest project include: a new, small meeting room; an enlarged main meeting room with new chairs that seat 60 people for events; the conversion of the garage into a new staff meeting room; and a new, 24-hour book return with a covered canopy and heated sidewalk.
