Beavercreek Community Library has reopened and returned to its normal operating hours. The library was temporarily closed in December and January for planned construction that includes a larger meeting room, a more interactive children’s area, and ADA compliant restrooms.
“We are excited to be reopening our busiest library,” says Elizabeth Cusack, Deputy Director, who serves as project manager on renovations. “We conducted a community survey to see what patrons wanted out of their library. The improvements made to the library directly address the feedback we received from the survey.”
Library service will only continue to improve, according to Cusack. The library will be adding digital signage and faster checkout systems, as well as instituting processes that will return materials from the check-in bin to the library shelf faster. Many of the changes to the floor plan and services are a result of a grant from the Ohio Development Services Agency Local Government Efficiency Program.
Library programming for all ages—children, teens, and adults—will immediately resume. Check the library’s online calendar for details.
