So you are wondering how does the REFRESH take place with books being on the shelves?

What's going on with the construction?
OutsideThe last 3 weeks have been spent making White Oak's parking lot and its book drop ADA compliant. Customers will have an easier time accessing the sidewalks and stairs to the library, the parking lot and the book drop when the library reopens from its refresh project. An ADA ramp was installed in front of the old book drop. The book drop will also be replaced so that the height meets ADA guidelines.

So what is else is happening while the library is closed?
White Oak Library's 3 book discussion groups are meeting at the White Oak Recreation Center. These book discussion groups include :
1) Mystery book discussion group
2) Evening book discussion group
3) African-American book discussion group.
The chess group is also meeting on Sundays at the White Oak Recreation Center.
Citizenship classes sponsored by the Baltimore City Community College are meeting at St. Stephen Lutheran Church, which is located at 11612 New Hampshire Avenue, Silver Spring, MD 20904.
Please stay tuned to the White Oak library blog for updates and pictures of construction. Thanks
