Refreshing the Micanopy Branch

The Micanopy Branch will be closed from Tuesday, Aug. 6 through Saturday, Aug.10 for the installation of new carpet and a fresh coat of paint. During this time we will also be shifting around a few pieces of furniture - but don't worry, we aren't removing any materials, just changing where you can find them. In fact we've managed to squeeze in a few more shelves of materials.

All holds designated to be sent to the branch will be delayed Aug. 4-12. 

               - The last day patrons may pick up their available holds will be by 5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 3.  

               - Holds will be unavailable for pick up until the reopening on Aug. 13.

               - Patrons may choose to have their holds sent to another branch during this time.     

               - Available holds waiting for pickup during the closed dates will be held extra days.    

The Branch resumes normal hours starting at noon on Tuesday, Aug. 13.  

So what is happening?

A mini Teen Space!  We are moving the Young Adult books, graphic novels, and audiobooks to their own wall.  We'll add a few cozy chairs and let our afterschool crowd enjoy some relaxation before taking on their homework.  

A newly designed Information Desk where you can ask questions, find help, or just stop by and say hello.  

You can already see some of the changes right now.  

Large Print book shelves at Micanopy Branch



Large Print materials have moved to a central location with bright overhead lights.  




Audiobooks and Non-Fiction DVDs at the Micanopy Branch



Audiobooks are now at the end of the Fiction section (previously Large Print)


Non-Fiction DVDs are next to the Audiobooks.    




Juvenile Non-Fiction at the Micanopy Branch



Juvenile Non-Fiction is now separated from the adult Non-Fiction books. This makes it easier for children to browse age-appropriate titles.  

You'll also notice the Seed Library taking up some space temporarily.   





We are excited to show off our makeover when we return on Tuesday, Aug. 13.
