New Library Administrator Selected

The Community and Cultural Services Department recently selected Renee Payne as the new Library Administrator.

She has served as acting Library Administrator since March, 2014 when the former Library Administrator resigned.



Renovations to begin at Branigan Library

Thomas Branigan Memorial Library has announced that renovations on the public restrooms located on the first floor will begin on Monday, July 21.  Both the men's and women's restroom on the first floor will be unavailable during the renovation. However, the public restrooms on the second floor will remain available during this time. Construction is expected to last until the third week in August. During the renovation period, a construction partition will be built at the entrance to the library to separate the public entrance from the construction area.

“The new restroom facilities will be an improvement”, said Renée Payne, Interim Library Administrator.  “We want to thank our library customers in advance for their understanding and support as we implement yet another way to make their library experience a more positive one.”
