Vermillion Public Library has changes to announce Nine extra parking spaces have been added to the Vermillion Public Library to accommodate more patrons.
But according to Head Librarian Jane Larson, the parking lot expansion is just one of many projects completed this year at the library.
"We now have a one-way entrance-exit system in the parking lot," she said. "Patrons enter on the north and exit at the south end."
The book and media drop boxes on Church Street will also be moved.
"They will be placed in the parking area near the south entrance of the building," Larson said. "And the drops will be on the driver's side. All in all, this will be safer and more convenient for our patrons who use them."
Exterior design has also changed with the removal of the brick planter on the west side of the building. Two "garden" areas were developed � one on the west and one on the south � with more lights and new landscaping, which includes perennial plants, gravel and decorative stones.
The Gen. Lloyd Moses Mini Park also continues to take shape, with benches, plants, trees, a table, walkways and lights, Larson added.
The interior of the library was renovated in 1999. Larson hopes that the library will be expanded to the north within the next five years.
