Westbank Gets a Makeover!

Westbank Library closed for 6 months this year to complete a renovation of their 15,000 square foot facility. The renovation included installation of a fire sprinkler system, addressing maintenance issues, refreshing the space
(new restrooms, kitchen, paint, flooring, furnishings, acoustical tiles, LED lighting, landscape, signage, and technology improvements), and making a few changes in response to changes in the community’s use of the space. They have
added community meeting space, created a single service desk (no more separate reference desk), enclosed the children’s area as a discovery space, and re-designed staff spaces. Their goal was to create a sanctuary for the community, and they are delighted at the warm response from their members!

Below is a photo from their first annual Artisan’s Market hosted by their Friends group. They had about 20 vendors plus 2 food trucks, and the Friends made about $1800 on a silent auction (each vendor donated an item) plus a small rental fee. Sounds like a huge success bringing in about 600 visitors!
