Emerald Plaza Breaks Through to the Other Side


I can’t help but have the Doors song “Break on Through to the Other Side” running through my head as I type this post.

The Emerald Plaza Branch is closed today for the second of three closures in our journey to expand the location to nearly twice its current size.  In the first stage, books and shelving were moved and a temporary wall was erected to separate the original library space from the construction zone.  Staff and customers have listened to the construction progress over the past month and a half, and this morning we broke through to the other side to see!

The RFID (radio frequency identification) sorting equipment is operational and library staff had training this morning with the new technology.  We have spent the remainder of the day packing up the offices, computers and library materials so that we’re ready to begin moving to the new, renovated space.

The plan is to reopen the branch to the public on July 22nd.   A third, short closure will occur in the Fall to remove the temporary wall, completing the expansion.

All of the Emerald Plaza staff are looking forward to showing off our beautiful new space, so be sure to come and see us on the ‘other side’!
