205 Constructions

Due to the 205 construction project, the main entrance to the library is currently closed. However, the library is still open! A second entrance has been created at the other end of the parking lot. So if you are coming from downtown, you will pass the old entrance and watch for the gravel drive to the right, and if you are coming from 30, watch for that entrance to the left as soon as you pass the hospital.
