Dayton Memorial Library main floor remodel pushed to April
February 13, 2020
DAYTON—Columbia County Rural Library District Director Dusty Waltner said because of some purchasing and delivery delays it was decided to push the planned library remodel to Spring break in April.
The CCRLD board and library administrators had plans to close the library over Christmas break to remodel the main floor with new paint, new carpet, and a redesign for better flow, providing ADA access throughout. Improved signage, inclusive restrooms and a three-story-vertical lift allowing access from the Delany Room to the Youth Library were planned, as well.
Waltner said, “An extensive remodel takes time, planning, and coordination, and the timeline adjustment ensures that the remodel is planned well.”
“We are excited to move forward with our plans in multiple stages,” she said.
Later stages of the remodel will involve improving access, storage and digitization of the local history and genealogy collections, the creation of a makerspace, with the addition of study areas, and updating the HVAC system for improved air quality.
