HAMPTON -- The Lane Memorial Library, has been undergoing a radical interior decoration these past two weeks.

Following, in part, some of the suggestions offered by the Library Commission that studied the Library this past spring and summer, many areas have been changed.

Due to the fine effort of the Friends of the Library in volunteering the help of their husbands, major pieces of equipment were quickly relocated with as little upset to the public as possible.

In an effort to fully utilize all available space and to make the functions of the library as accessible as possible to all patrons, Mrs. Charlotte Hutton, Librarian, has had her office, staff room and work area moved upstairs into into what was the reading area. The reading area has been moved out into the foyer making a charming reading lounge area.

The circulation desk and card catalogs have been relocated on the main level for the convenience of many who found that stairs presented a problem.

The copy machine is still in operation but at the end of the library.

Take advantage of viewing the bicentennial film "B1ack Winter" on Wednesday, Jan. 21 at 8 p.m. at the Library and take a look at our "new look"
