MaumeeSide Moving Forward

Significant changes are taking place on the Maumee Street facade of the library! New block has been placed to create the exterior wall for the coffee shop and teen area. If you look carefully through the construction scaffolding you can even see the shapes of the windows on the new mezzanine level as well as the windows in the coffee shop and teen room below. These upgrades will bring much needed natural light into the building and offer energy efficiencies. Very soon the brick and stone work will start on our south entrance. In fact the pallets of bricks have been delivered and are located all around the library. Check out the beautiful red brick that will soon adorn the library's exterior.
