Extensive work will take place in removing and replacing defective ceiling tiles and light fixtures in the check-out and audio/visual materials area of the Nesmith Library. Therefore, the Library must close because of the danger of falling materials, hazardous dust, and a lack of useful lighting. Library hours on Sunday, December 19, will be the same, 1:00 - 5:00 pm. Starting Monday, though, the Library will be closed to the public. It will remain closed through Sunday, December 26, and will reopen on Monday, December 27, at 9:00 am.
The decision was made to do the work at this time of year due to a traditional falling off of library usage during the week of Christmas. We feel that work done during this period will have less of a negative impact on Library users. Staff will be involved in training and other projects away from the effected area. We apologize for any inconvenience and hope that the improved lighting will result in a more comfortable library experience for you and your family.
So, in order to keep you well-stocked before the closing, we suggest you visit us this week and check out a sackful of books, films, and musical CDs. And, since it's Christmas time, you may want to consider some of these holiday related novels [F]:
Clark, Mary Higgins. Santa Cruise: A Holiday Mystery At Sea.
Dickens, Charles. The Cricket on the Hearth: A Fairy Tale of Home.
Guinn, Jeff. The Great Santa Search as told to Jeff Guinn by Santa Claus himself.
Macomber, Debbie. Small Town Christmas.
Mitchard, Jacquelyn. Christmas, Present.
Roberts, Sheila. On Strike for Christmas.
Snyder, John. The Golden Ring: A Christmas Story.
VanLiere, Donna. The Christmas Shoes. VanLiere specializes in Christmas stories--we have six of them in our collection!
Although the Library will be closed, KK's Kurio Kabinet will have postings Monday through Friday as usual.
