Library Remodel – Latest

Hi Everyone,

We are making some progress in planning our remodel. As we move through the process, we will be sharing all the information we have with you via our website:

Incidentally, our website itself will be changing in early July. You can check out the beta site at Look in the top right hand corner for the latest information about the remodel!

For now, I can tell you that:

1. We are close to hiring the Project Manager who will then help with all the rest of the planning. (Thank goodness)

2. We are planning to vacate the building by December if all goes well.

3. We will likely have to store the print collection off-site and will be looking for your input about how best to minimize the inconvenience this may cause.

4. We should move back into the new space in spring 2011!

Here we go!

  1. Hello,

    Congratulations on your remodel. I am in searching for furniture from the 1950’s-1970’s. Will you be selling any furniture during your remodeling process? Thank you so much for your assitance. I appreciate your time.

  2. Hi Trish,

    We do certainly have lots of vintage 1960s furniture. Feel free to monitor my blog or our library website for the latest information on our progress as we remodel. At this time, its too early to know what furnishings we will be replacing and if we would even be able to get approval to sell any of it, since it is state property. I appreciate your interest.


  3. I am a high school principal in St. Joseph, MO who has been given a great gift — to remodel our library to meet the needs of students receiving Web 2.0 instruction in their classrooms. I have a great budget — what do you suggest? What digital resources do you suggest? Furniture? Technology? Space usage? I am envisioning an internet cafe of sorts — your thoughts?!? ~jw
