• A new look awaits Plainfield library patrons

    September 16, 2011 No comments

    The staff of the Plainfield-Guilford Township Public Library rolled up their sleeves to create a new look for patrons. The facility needed new carpeting and the staff took advantage of a week-long closing to make some other changes to enhance the library.

    The teen portion of the library known as Area T has been expanded to three times the size it was and it was moved into an enclosed area that had been used for staff space.

    The library also secured different shelving units that can move and are not as tall.

    New furniture has been added that makes the library more flexible in that they can move the units as needed.

    The library has been closed since Sept. 12 and it will re-open on Sept. 19.

    Library Director Edra Waterman said ,“We will not have everything done when we re-open. We will be able to check things in and out, but there will be no access to public computers for at least another week.”

    Waterman said that the remodeling project was paid for by funds put aside by the library over the past 10 years.

    The staff will be hosting a grand re-opening celebration from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 24. There will be a ribbon cutting ceremony at 11 a.m. and free library book bags will be given way. There will also be exhibits, a craft project for children, a teen podcast, special tours, and hourly door prizes including a Barnes and Noble Nook e-reader.

    The Plainfield-Guilford Township Public Library is at 1120 Stafford Road, Plainfield. For more information, call the library at 838-3800 or visit the website at www.plainfieldlibrary.net.
