New Furniture in the Teen Department!!!
The Friends agreed with library staff that the old upholstered furniture in the Teen Department were cause for concern. The staff selected durable, colorful and easy to maintain furnishings and the Friends paid the bill. The are which is located on the second floor near the Information Desk looks vibrant and enhances the overall appearance of the library. Stop by and look for yourself!
