The John F. Kennedy Library Consolidation project was created to improve convenience for customers, make it easier for families to use the library together and increase security. The project began on March 18 and is expected to be completed this summer. When the consolidation is complete, children's books and DVDs will be relocated to the main floor. The main floor will continue to operate a computer center, group study rooms, teen reading area, a customer service section and reference/information desks. An expanded story time room, an additional study room, new bathrooms including one for families, and a Friends of the Library bookstore will be added.
Here is little peek of what's happening inside the construction area.
