Library Remodeling Technology Area

February through May 2014

The Library is moving forward with its goal to increase digital literacy skills in the community with the new Information Commons.  This technology area will include computers for public access and the new Science, Exploration, Education, Design (SEED) Lab.  Both projects are made possible through the generous support of the Friends of the Winter Haven Library and the Estate of Elaine Zoborowski.

All furniture removed.

Carpet removed and floors trenched to prepare for new data and electric lines.
