Granite Counter Top Installed

ou are wel­come to stop in to see the new gran­ite counter top on the library’s cir­cu­la­tion desk. The pre­vi­ous counter top was show­ing signs of its age and the wear of years of hav­ing books and other mate­ri­als slid over its Formica® surface.

The library board decided to invest in a more durable, organic and attrac­tive replace­ment by choos­ing gran­ite stone, rather than plas­tic. The length of the library’s clo­sure was deter­mined by: the need to remove every­thing from the counter top, removal of the exist­ing counter top, per­for­mance of elec­tri­cal improve­ments to meet elec­tri­cal codes, instal­la­tion of the new counter top, allowance of time for all adhe­sives to suf­fi­ciently dry and re-installation of all four com­put­ers, bar code scan­ners etc. on the new counter top.

It is hoped that the new cir­cu­la­tion desk’s counter top, which is one of the first things noticed when enter­ing the library, will make a more pleas­ant and sub­stan­tial state­ment about the community.
