Currently there are 899 active members. Renewal Membership envelopes are coming in steadily. Thank you letters for life members have been sent. Each new and renewing member will receive an acknowledge-ment email with a certificate for a free regular-priced book from the BookCellar or from one of the branch library used book sale carts.
Central Library Parking Garage Elevator Update
Center City Development & Operations Department (CCDO), the City department that operates the Central Library parking garage, will soon begin work to replace the elevator (yay!). Unfortunately, this means that the elevator will be out of commission from approximately Jan. 6 to Mar. 3. CCDO will be identifying additional reserved parking spots on the first floor for indi-viduals who need the use of an elevator if they were to park on floors 2 and 3.
SAPL Marketing has created some signage that will be displayed in the Library and on social media as a heads up to patrons. CCDO will post signage outside the garage entrance to warn users as they enter.
Please continue to report any issues regarding the garage to the Library Director's office.
