News and Events from the Wayland Library, July 22, 2011

SUMMER HOURS.  We are now well into summer. During the summer our weekend our are different than they are during the rest of the year. In the summer we are open on Saturdays from 10-1, closed Sundays and open regular hours on weekdays. We will also be closed on Friday, August 12, and Saturday, August 13, for building repairs (more about this below).

LIMITED LIBRARY SERVICES AT THE END OF AUGUST.  At the end of this summer, the main floor of the library will undergo planned maintenance, which was deferred for one year due to last spring’s flooding. The carpet on the main floor will be replaced, the damaged plaster on ceilings will be repaired, and the whole upstairs will get a fresh coat of paint. The library will be completely closed on Friday, August 12, and Saturday, August 13, to allow the staff to relocate upstairs operations to the Raytheon Room. The library will open on Monday, August 15, with limited services for adults in the Raytheon Room but full service in the Youth Services Department. The work is expected to take between two to three weeks. During this time there will be no public access to the upstairs collection, but our users will still be able to place Minuteman catalog items on reserve to be picked up here at our library.
ART EXHIBITS.  Carrie Salsberg, whose work is on exhibit in the library foyer during July, is a multimedia artist and art instructor. Her works include acrylic painting, mixed media collage, ceramics, jewelry, mosaics, stained glass, murals, floor cloths, and decorative furnishings. Also this month, Nancy Molvig’s oil paintings are on exhibit in the Raytheon Room. Nancy is most drawn to her native New England landscapes and seascapes for inspiration.
GET CAUGHT READING!  Our lower level display case features an exhibit of paintings and photographs of people reading in many locations. Do you have a great photo of you or a family member reading? If so, drop it off at our display case as we’re planning another display of local people reading.
