March @ the Main Library
A Monthly Report
New Teen Space is a Go! New Business Space Coming!
While we're thanking people, let's hear it for Michael and Elly, who, in just one day, removed the shelving from the empty Fishbowl, and got it set up to be a viable business space. Thanks also to Patsy, who helped get Facilities involved. Michael took a trip down to Spring City, risked death by dust bunny, and chose furniture that will house three computers and the workforce printer/scanner. Also in the space are two small conference tables and some casual seating. Michael is working on building a collection for the area, and finding free resources for job seekers and entrepreneurs.
The last step in the process is moving the computers, copiers and other tech stuff to their new homes. Tami has assisted us with this process, and the move should be completed by June first. Michael hopes to start offering business programming by late summer.
