No, the patrons are not under construction. Rather our library is under construction.
This is, of course, temporary.
Temporary is a relative term. With luck my life span will be something close to twenty years. People, I am told, live a lot longer than that as a rule.
Temporary for people could mean several years.
This, however, is not the case here. Our nooks and crannies are closed to the public (That would be you.) right now.
That would be the two rooms at the end of the hall that have the sinks and little booths.
Bathrooms, they are called, though I have never seen anyone, person or feline, bathe in either of these rooms.
They are not useable right now. Soon. Very soon. But not now.
Also the book drop is temporarily indisposed. For the time being you will need to bring your books and tapes and CD’s and DVD’s inside the library to return them.
We are sorry about that, since we realize that it is not always convenient to come to the library during the hours we are open.
For your information, our current hours are as follows:
Hours:effective January 2009
Mon 1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Tue 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Wed 12:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.
Thu 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Fri 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Sat 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Thank you. See you soon, I hope.
