Between March and August of this year the installation of a new HVAC system will take place. HVAC stands for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. The HVAC system has not been changed since 1963. The work is primarily done “behind the scenes” in the 1st floor Administrative area and will not affect patron services.

In the meantime, temporary heating and cooling units will be installed. We’re looking forward to a more efficient system in the near future.
