It has been a full month of renovations at our Cayce-West Columbia Branch. The circulation counter had several spots where the laminate was worn all the way through to the brown surface below; evidence of how many books that have slid across this counter over the years! This has been replaced with new laminate so the process can begin anew. Additional outside lights have been installed to light up areas of the parking lot and sidewalk that were dark. The spotted spackle look has finally been covered with a new coat of paint as well as the misnamed mural, leaving us with a clean new look throughout.
The computer area in Reference is almost complete with new furnishings and additional computer stations which will allow patrons more space and privacy as they work online. Patrons have been so patient with us as much of this work has gone on while we were open with areas being cordoned off, computers being down, and lifts and ladders being moved about. We are happy that many have made favorable comments about the changes.
