At their December 13 Board meeting the Friends approved $26,000 in funding for furnishings for the Ocean Park Branch Library. The Branch will be closed from January 3 through January 28, 2011 for recarpeting and interior improvements which include; children's shelving, enhancements to the storytelling space, computer furnishings for adults and children, additional wiring for information technology and more.
An important part of the makeover is the furniture the Friends agreed to fund. The furnishings are evocative of the ocean and will include in the children's area a computer table with six stations, six rolling chairs to compliment the computer table, three round tables with twelve chairs, two small two person benches for parent-child reading and stools. In the adult area six rolling computer chairs will be purchased.
