Oracle Public Library opens quiet corner

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

A bright, inviting space for casual reading and quiet computer activities has been added to Oracle Public Library.

The 10- by 14-foot corner, with smart cafe tables and chairs, was carved out of a storage area as a way to provide greater convenience to library users. The library has Wi-Fi access and four laptop computers which can be checked out to use in the building. Five full-service computer cubicles are available as well.

Also in response to suggestions from library users, fresh-brewed coffee will soon be available at a nominal fee for those using the new space.  

The remodeling project was approved last year by the all-volunteer board and enthusiastically supported by the all-volunteer staff. Fund-raising projects, such as the semi-annual used book sales, support such library-building projects.

No bookshelf space was lost in the design. Ron Wood, local private contractor, did the construction, which included removing walls and adding a small counter and sink, tile floor, and large storage area. 

Oracle Public Library is open six days a week and serves the community with a full selection of fiction, non-fiction, and reference books for children, teens, and adults; DVDs, CDs and Playaways; and a unique Southwest Room collection of regional-interest books.
