What if you could come downtown any time you wanted to have a great time with your family, with your best friend, to meet your neighbors, to learn, to improve your life? Guess what? You can do that now. Guess what else? It’s going to be even more wonderful in the near future. So what am I talking about? The Durham Bulls? Oh yes, they’re great! But no, I’m not talking about the Durham Bulls. American Tobacco? Brightleaf Square? The Carolina Theatre? The YMCA? (That’s one of my favorite places!) Actually, you know what I’m talking about. The Durham County Main Library! We have hundreds of thousands of people visiting the Main Library every year. People are here every day with family, meeting friends and neighbors, finding good books, borrowing DVDs and just generally being part of a great community. We’re making plans, though. Beginning in June and continuing until October, we are in the midst of a study of our Main Library. We had a community meeting and several focus groups in July to outline what’s planned and to hear what you want in a renovation of this “anchor library” in the Durham County Library system. On September 16 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in the Main Library Auditorium, we will have another community meeting to present what we’ve learned so far and to hear more of your ideas. Please join us. Now that’s what I’m talking about!

New Regionals Update This coming fall and winter, we will have groundbreaking ceremonies for two new regional libraries: (a) South Regional Library on the Lowe’s Grove School property at Alston Ave. and Route 54 and (b) Southwest Regional Library, which will replace Southwest Branch Library on the same site at Shannon Road. These two regional libraries, when completed in 2010, will complete the project to develop a Durham County Library system of four regional libraries, a Main Library, Stanford L. Warren Library, two community libraries and Outreach & Mobile Services. Southwest will close for over a year. Let me say it again: Southwest Branch Library has to close in November or December in order to renovate the existing 10,000 square foot library and build a 15,000 square foot addition. The property will be a construction site for nearly a year and a half. So you ask yourself, “What will I do?!” We know that this closing will be difficult for a lot of people. This library is well-used and well-loved. We promise the wait will be worth it, as Southwest will be reborn as a wonderful full-service library with many more computers, a great Teen Zone, a fantastic Children’s Room, a vending area, excellent meeting and conference rooms, great collections, easy-to-use self-check technology, study areas and on and on. You will love it! In the meantime, you DO have other choices while Southwest is closed. Parkwood Branch Library will be open on Sundays during the closing. Main Library will still be open while Southwest is under construction. So will the delightful historic treasure Stanford L. Warren Library. Finally, we will have weekly Bookmobile Service close to the Southwest Library while we’re closed. You love your libraries now. You’ll really love them when we complete these building projects, resulting in a renaissance of library services! Now that’s what I’m really talking about!

In this issue

¿Entonces que es de lo que estoy hablando? ¿Los Toros de Durham (Durham Bulls)? ¡Oh, claro, son muy buenos! Pero no, no estoy hablando de los Toros de Durham. ¿American Tobacco? ¿Brightleaf Square? ¿El Teatro Carolina (The Carolina Theatre)? ¿El YMCA? (¡Es uno de mis lugares favoritos!)

Locations & Hours, p. 2

Realmente, usted sabe que es de lo que estoy hablando. ¡La Biblioteca Principal del Condado de Durham! Tenemos miles de personas visitando la Biblioteca Principal cada año. Mucha gente viene aquí diariamente con familia, a reunirse con amigos y vecinos, buscando libros buenos, llevándose DVD’s prestados y en general siendo parte de esta gran comunidad.

Children’s Programs, p. 4 – 7

Message from the Director, p. 2

Estamos haciendo planes. Empezando en junio y continuando hasta octubre, estaremos en medio de un estudio de nuestra Biblioteca Principal. Tuvimos una junta con la comunidad y varios grupos de enfoque el mes de julio para delinear que es lo que se esta planeando y para escuchar que es lo que ustedes quieren en una renovación de esta “Biblioteca Ancla” en el sistema de la Biblioteca del Condado de Durham (Durham County Library). El 16 de Septiembre de 5:30 a 7:00 p.m. en el Auditorio de la Biblioteca Principal, tendremos otra junta con la comunidad para presentar lo que aprendimos y para escuchar mas de sus ideas. Por favor venga a reunirse con nosotros. ¡Eso es de lo que estoy hablando!

Teen Programs, p. 8 – 9

Nuevas Noticias de las Regionales Nuevas. Este otoño e invierno, tendremos ceremonias de rompesuelo para dos nuevas bibliotecas regionales: (a)South Regional Library en la previa propiedad de la Escuela Lowe’s Grove sobre Alston Ave. y Ruta 54 y (b) Southwest Regional Library, que reemplazará la Sucursal Southwest en el mismo sitio en Shannon Road. Estas dos bibliotecas regionales, cuando sean completadas en 2010, completará el proyecto de desarrollo del sistema de la Biblioteca del Condado de Durham con cuatro bibliotecas regionales, una Biblioteca Principal, la Biblioteca Stanford L. Warren, y los servicios de Alcance y Móvil. Southwest estará cerrada por más de un año. Déjenme decirlo otra vez: La Sucursal Southwest tiene que cerrar en noviembre o diciembre para que se renueven los existentes 10,000 pies cuadrados y construir unos 15,000 pies cuadrado adicionales. La propiedad será un sitio de construcción por casi año y medio. Entonces usted se preguntará, “¡¿Que haré entonces?!” Sabemos que esto será difícil para muchas personas. Esta biblioteca es usada mucho y es muy querida también. Le prometemos que valdrá la pena la espera, pero Southwest renacerá como una maravillosa biblioteca con todos los servicios completos con muchas mas computadoras, una gran zona para jóvenes (Teen Zone), un área de niños fantástico, un área de maquinas de refrescos y golosinas, excelentes cuartos para juntas y conferencias, grandes colecciones, tecnología de auto-chequeo fácil de usar, áreas de estudio y mas y mas. ¡A ustedes les encantará! Al mismo tiempo, ustedes TIENEN otras opciones mientras Southwest esta cerrada. La Sucursal Parkwood estará abierta los domingos durante este tiempo. La Biblioteca Principal todavía estará abierta mientras Southwest esta en construcción. También estará abierto el tesoro histórico Stanford L. Warren. Finalmente, mientras la sucursal Southwest esta cerrada tendremos servicio semanal del Bibliomóvil. Usted ama sus bibliotecas ahora. ¡Pero usted realmente las amará más cuando completemos este Renacimiento de Servicios de Bibliotecas que es este programa de construcción de la década presente! ¡Eso es lo que realmente estoy hablando!
