Changes at the Library

You may have noticed that we are making some changes at the Upton Library.
We are currently shifting some of our collections and re-allocating space to accommodate some new services starting at the library this summer.
Detailed announcements will be made in June and July, but here is a preview:

Hours changing to:  Tues, Weds, Thurs 10am to 8pm, Friday and Saturday 10am to 4pm.
Our Saturday hours will be slightly shorter and Friday hours longer.  This will make our hours more consistent, less confusing, and give more time to our Friday afternoon patrons.

Our Fiction, Young Adult, Mystery and Science Fiction collections are now all located together on the right side of the library.
Putting these collections together will allow us to free up space in the back gathering room to hold evening events, and create a quiet study room that can be reserved by students, tutors and other groups.

The TV Show collection has moved to between the DVD movies and the Nonfiction collection, moving it will give us space on the left wall for two more public computer workstations.

I apologize for any inconvenience if your favorite authors are now on a new shelf, or have been removed from the collection and need to be accessed by interlibrary loan.  Continually adjusting our collection is one way the library is attempting to expand library services in limited space.
Bear with us as we go through the adjustment process in June.

Look for our summer schedule of new evening events which will be posted soon!
