From South Milwaukee Library Director Nan Champe …
A complete flooring upgrade and new paint throughout the South Milwaukee Library will close the facility April 15-29. The Library will resume normal operating hours Monday, April 30, 2018.
The new flooring will include walk off/highly durable carpet squares at all entrances, vinyl flooring in two meeting rooms and carpet squares throughout the rest of the library. The new flooring will help create natural walkways and space definition and provide easy maintenance and repair. The current carpet was installed in 1995.Warm and welcoming colors will be added to the walls throughout the library and will also help define key areas, such as the children’s library space.
- Due dates for South Milwaukee-owned items will be extended through the closed period. Take advantage of the extended due dates by stocking up before the closing!
- The outside book drop will be open to receive returns. It will be emptied daily and items will be checked in.
- Don’t forget to use our digital services during this time: Overdrive, Hoopla and RBdigital Magazines. If you need help getting started, let us know.
