If you haven’t been upstairs at the Library since the new carpet was installed, please take a few minutes to acquaint yourself with the new layout. After moving 40,000+ books and magazines, 46 shelving units (several times), 16 book cases and dozens of other items of furniture, a new look has emerged.
Look at all the space! (It’s a secret where we found it.) See if you can find some secluded areas to use, away from the areas of highest traffic. All the carpet in the building is now the same, and it is delightful.
Many groups ask to use rooms in the library for meetings and filling all of those requests has not always been possible. In order to help meet this need, the Friends of the Marshall Public Library have donated a meeting room that can be scheduled in the same way as other meeting rooms in the Library. Groups of up to eight people can be accommodated in this new area on the second floor.
Many thanks go to the library staff, men from City Parks and Recreation, Haywire Robotics Club, and other volunteers who worked hard to make this change happen!
Come and enjoy.
Kris Castro, Reference Supervisor
