Welcome Back

The Devereaux Library was constructed in 1968/69. At that time, the top floor of the library was left unfinished. A renovation project in began in 2004. This project saw the installation of lights, carpeting, walls and a new ventilation system in portions of the building.

In 2006 the Friends of the Devereaux Library provided the funds to furnish the "new" floor, and to replace much of the 30+ year old furniture provided by Harry Devereaux at the time of the original construction.

The furniture has arrived, things are rearranged. Pictures are posted, but they don't begin to show how nice everything really looks. Stop by and see the changes!
