wheelchair ramp

Recently, the Maze branch was closed for 10 months to renovate the library. Most of the books were packed and stored, with a small amount circulating through the main branch. A major goal of the renovation was to make the library more accessible, so they added a wheelchair ramp (see photo). There were also some interior renovations, including major work in the basement. I didn't get any photos down there, the designated "quiet area," but it looks much better than the dingy, cave-like appearance it had before the renovation.

Since the renovation, circulation is up by 6-9% depending on the month. Peggy hoped it would be up higher, but admits that they are still making minor adjustments and rearranging things.
