The renovated Byram Shubert Branch Library officially opened for business this past Saturday, March 28th.
The expansion and renovation project nearly doubled the available space with a bi-level addition adjoining the old one-floor structure. Together, the two structures now house distinct areas for children, young adults and adults. The community room, with seating for 100, will be used for programs including author lectures, art exhibits, films and concerts. The existing interiors have been renovated and appointed with entirely new furnishings. The new branch library offers 22 public computer terminals, up from 6 in the old facility.
The branch library collection features materials for children and adults and expanded offerings for young adults. The young adult collection highlights the latest and most popular materials including graphic novels and critically acclaimed books. A new periodicals section will include more magazines and newspapers.
The hours of the Byram Shubert Library are Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.; Tuesday 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.; and Thursday 12:00 p.m. to 8 p.m.
