Over the next few weeks, you will see several changes made to the lobbies of Mills, Thode and Innis libraries.

All three libraries will have their entrance/exit turnstiles replaced with bi-directional corridors - no more having to figure out which is IN and which is OUT!

Additionally, the service desk on the main floor of Mills is being replaced. For a few weeks we will offer our services from a temporary service desk located a bit further into the library. The self check-out machines have also been relocated near the New Book Display area.
