While the renovated library has many wonderful features, the colour choice for the carpet is unfortunately not one of them. The carpets are cleaned on a regular schedule and for special events, but it has been impossible to keep up with the stains. We ask that our patrons only bring drinks in covered, reusable containers but there is obviously a lot of spillage. The challenge is to work with our patrons to prevent this from happening, since we have neither the funds nor the resources to clean such a large area more frequently.
