Work at West Branch Library continues!

Duct work has arrived to West Branch. And, behind the scrim, contractors are prepping the exterior building for stucco and specialized tile. The branch is now slated to open towards the end of 2013.

The book return room will have both an exterior and interior book drop for the convenience of patrons.

These water tanks will eventually be placed on the top of West. The tanks will hold the water that provides radiant heat to floor coils. 

Here is a closer look at the Teen Reading Room; this room, while a bit narrow, will receive great light.

The Children's Reading Room at West will be in this recessed, area at the back of the main reading room.

Skylights on the roof of West are largely responsible for the great light the new library will have.

Standing in the Children's Reading area, looking to University Avenue, you can get a sense of the main library space.

Here's looking to the library Service Desk, and behind it, will be the West Meeting Room.
