Shifting on the 2nd Floor

You may notice some extra movement upstairs over the next few weeks. We’re adjusting the locations of our adult collections, to improve the flow of shelving. This should make it easier to find items, especially in Adult Fiction and Non-fiction. We’re also integrating the Reference collection with the Non-fiction collection, so you’ll see books with bright yellow Reference labels mixed in with the Non-Fiction.

Materials on the move!

These changes were inspired by patron comments and suggestions. Please let us know what you think of the new positioning on the 2nd floor, by phone at (905)-775-3328, or using our online Comment form.
