Hurricane Sandy Resources - updated 09-09-2013
sponsored by the Freeport Memorial Library Teen Advisory Board
SATURDAYS, DECEMBER 7 AND DECEMBER 14, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The Teen Advisory Board will be collecting brand new toys in the library's lobby on the dates listed above. All toys will be donated to deserving families.
In late July, we opened our newly renovated 10,000-square-foot main floor, which contains the TRAC (Teen Resource Activity Center), a seating area designed for seniors, a new Reference area called ASK (Always Seek Knowledge), two small quiet study rooms for individual study, and our brand-new Business Resource Information Center (BRIC).
The lower-level renovation is almost completed. We anticipate this area will be open by early December, thereby giving our patrons access to the materials housed there, including 28-day fiction, nonfiction, biographies, and the vocational collection. On the lower level we’re adding a training center, Computer and Career Center (C3), an ADA-compliant bathroom, and a lounge with a vending area where you’ll be able to purchase healthy snacks, coffee, and other beverages.
As the renovation has progressed, we have done our best to remain open and to provide the same level of service you have come to expect. Currently, we are providing public computer access in Meeting Room 4 in the East Building. Once the lower level is complete, the computers will be moved back to their original location.
In response to your needs, we have also increased our Wi-Fi capability by adding additional access points throughout the building. The entire renovation is being done with you, our patrons, in mind, and at no additional cost to the taxpayers. We appreciate your patience during this process, and we hope to see you at our grand reopening in April. We’ll have more to tell you regarding the festivities as the date gets closer, but in the meantime please save the date: Saturday, April 12, 2014.
