Magazine Room “Facelift”
After more than 20 years, and thousands of visitors a week, the floor in Central Library’s Magazine Room is showing some wear and tear. Later this summer, work will begin to replace the flooring with a durable new laminate. The renovation will take a few weeks to complete, and the room will be closed to the public while the work takes place. Magazines and newspapers will be temporarily located to areas on the third floor in the North Reading Room.
