We visited the Nola Brantley renovations and it’s beautiful! Some members of the Library Board and Friends of the Library, plus the whole Nola Brantley library staff had their walk through of the newly renovated Nola Brantley Memorial Library last Friday.
Wow! What a change! Walls were in places that they weren’t before, openings were in new locations, and hallways led to totally new areas. In fact, it was so different, that it was easy to get turned around!
There are some great additions to the building. We now have an official Teen Room that looks absolutely wonderful! Everybody gave a big “Oooohhh!” when they saw it. But don’t worry adults; there are features just for you, too. Plenty of reading space and areas dedicated to just fiction and non-fiction. And for the history buffs, I do believe the Local History Room has also been expanded some. But just to give you an idea of the layout, here is a picture of the library from the circulation desk (my personal favorite feature):
Children’s has also been overhauled. In fact, it has been moved to the other side of the building! But it too looks great. There’s plenty of space – and to my delight, they even made a storytime area!
Well, you really can’t see it from the picture, so just take my word for it, it’s there! Now, onto the subject near and dear to my heart: the Circulation Desk. I absolutely love what the Circ. Desk looks like. Maybe it’s the inner Trekkie in me, but I find myself absolutely mesmerized by it. What do you think? Isn’t it great!
