Library History

Main Library Renovation

The Main Library recently underwent a top to bottom renovation, funded mainly with capital grants from the city and some support from the state and other sources. The project, which was accomplished in five stages to minimize disruption to the public, began in August, 2008 and was mainly finished by September, 2010.


Starbucks at the Library

Starbucks and the Library have a close working relationship. The coffee house opens directly into the Friends Book Shop. The door to the book shop is always open during Library hours, and Starbucks offers Friends members a 10% discount.
