When the Kirk-Bear Canyon Library reopens next week, it will have a different look and what managing librarian Daphne Daly hopes is a new feel.
"We wanted to go from a place where you would go and pick up your books and leave to a destination where you would go and spend some time," Daly said. A new area for teenagers to do homework, surf the Internet and read books has been added.
"The seating is such that it looks like a little cafe," Daly said. The $1 million expansion added 5,000 square feet to the branch and transformed its storefront location into a multilevel facility with sweeping architectural features, colorful carpet and vibrantly painted walls.
