LME Open House Visitors

At our September 11th Open House, both our Representative David Leitch and our Senator, Darin LaHood joined the celebration.  The LME Library recently completed several renovation projects to improve the overall condition and aesthetics of the library interior.

The renovations included several projects.  In the first phase, the doors at our library entrances were replaced with tempered glass to improve safety and energy efficiency.  The interior was repainted to make the library a more inviting place.  Finally, the carpeting has been replaced with a wood look vinyl plank and new carpeting designed to resist and hide stains.  All these improvements were made during and after regular library hours.  Without the support and assistance of our patrons and staff, we would have been unable to stay open and operational during this entire process.   Below are additional pictures of the completed renovations.
The meeting room is now a plank looking vinyl.  It's easier to clean and the new rug can be brought out for children's programs.

The Children's Area--the soft furniture was donated by the LME Library Friends.

Our computer area now has vinyl under the task chairs.

Kathy Sullivan donated 22 hours to complete the "splash" mural in the Teen Section.

Our wonderful Turner Room is now more colorful--it's a perfect place to enjoy the garden views.
