Moving Schedule

As you can see from the photos, the new library is almost done!

Please join us on Sunday, August 6 for Opening Day. Ribbon cutting and dedication will be at 1:00pm. The library will be open for regular business from 1 to 5 that day as well.

The last day of library service at the Phillips School will be Friday, July 14. During the next three weeks, staff and movers will relocate all of the library materials, files, computers, and furniture. Book drops at Phillips and Town Hall will be open during that time. For more information check out the library website -www.watertownlib.org.

See you on August 6!

This is the fiction and av area on the second floor. Shelving will start arriving on July 5.

The service desk in the Teen room looks great!

Cafe vendor needed!

We need a vendor for our sleek new cafe! The process to apply is Request for Proposals, so check out our website for the details - www.watertownlib.org. The space is beautiful and there will be free wi-fi in the cafe (as well as the rest of the building). The library supplies tables, chairs, the required plumbing fixtures and sinks. It's a great opportunity!

The millwork is being installed -- these are beautiful maple window seats upstairs in the fiction area.

We now have fixtures in the restrooms, as well as partitions!

The mason is in the process of power washing all of the bricks and masonry -- old and new.

The front seat walls and retaining walls have been poured. This is a very important part of the site work and landscaping.

This is a picture of the glass hand rails that surround the openings to the first floor. In the top right hand corner you can see the color that the main wall is going to be.

The long white tubes are the flourescent light fixtures in the non-fiction area upstairs.
