Interior rejuvenation Project Update - Monday, June 16 - Demo Day

Work has begun on the first phase of the interior rejuvenation project with demo of the carpeting and a bit of tiling in the Circulation Workroom.  This will continue through tomorrow, June 17, as the area behind the Circulation Desk is cleared of old, worn, carpet.

Please be patient with us during this process, as Circulation Staff have moved to temporary work stations located in front of the Circulation Desk to serve your needs to return, renew, or check out materials, and renew or obtain a Roselle Public Library Card.

All Library services continue through the interior rejuvenation project.  Any questions about the work going on, please contact Amy Cawley, Executive Director, acawley@roselle.lib.il.us or call 630-529-1641, ext. *311. 


"Garden Art" at the Roselle Public Library

The Roselle Park District Garden Club has placed three pieces of "Garden Art" by the front windows of the Library to help bring some color and excitement to the landscape.  "Garden Art" is made from "found objects" - plates, cups, glass rings and such, secured to a glass bottle set upside down so that it can be put on a post.  The Garden Club also planted the annuals in the garden area and in the flower pots near the Library's front door. The Library appreciates the efforts of the members of the Roselle Park District Garden Club to help the Roselle Public Library look inviting to those who visit us to Read, Play, Learn, and Discover.

Interior Up-dating Project Phase One Begins ....

The first phase of the Roselle Public Library's Interiors Up-dating Project begins on Monday, June 16 in the Circulation Department Workroom and behind the Circulation Service Desk.  Demo of the flooring in these areas is expected to be done on Monday, June 16, followed by installation of rubber tile behind the Service Desk and new carpet tiles in the Circulation Workroom.  The current flooring is from the most recent renovation in 1997, and is now extremely worn - all the way to the concrete beneath the carpet.  As this is a safety issue for employees and others, we are very pleased to have this be "Phase One" of the project.  

Please "PARDON OUR DUST" as we go through this process.  The Library will be open as usual - Circulation Services will be located in front of the Service Desk, with Meeting Room B serving as the Circulation Department Workroom for "behind the scenes" work.  This portion of the project is expected to be completed by June 26.  Please be patient with us during this process, and continue to visit your Roselle Public Library - the best place to Read, Play, Learn, and Discover, all summer long.
