The New Look Redmond Library

Hundreds of library patrons eagerly swarmed the Redmond Library on the day of its reopening, Saturday, January 10th. On entering the library’s doorway, visitors were greeting with a new large Welcome sign:

Welcome to the Redmond Library

It’s hard to believe, but it’s been 10 years since the Redmond Library opened its doors in its current location. With forty thousand library patrons visiting the library each month, it was time for much of the carpeting and furniture to be replaced.

Children’s Area
Improvements in the children’s area in the library are not yet complete, and will continue even after the reopening. However, you’ll immediately notice the set of new children’s chairs with decorative backs, topped with ducks, squirrels and frogs:

Self Check In Improvements
New additions to the Redmond Library include a third automated Self Check In machine. All three machines are now in a highly visible protective enclosure. This enclosure keeps you dry from the rain, and makes it easer to see the machine's screen on sunny days.
