The Joyner-Green Valley Branch Library is ushering in a new chapter with a modern layout and upgraded shelving. And that’s just for starters.
The library will close for two weeks starting June 3 during the first phase of the renovation.
The project comes with a $200,000 price tag, with $197,000 going to replace shelving; the extra money will pay for housekeeping expenses associated with the renovation.
During the second leg of the project, during which the library will not be closed, worn furniture will be replaced and computers used for catalogue searches will be added to the children and teen sections. Having a separate space for adults and children using library computers can help when, for example, a parent is applying for a job.
“It just creates a better experience for parents and children,” said Kathy Konecny, manager at Joyner-Green Valley.
