2015 Lane Memorial Library Improvements Warrant Article #23

The purpose of this Warrant Article request is twofold:

1) To replace the fan coils and thermostats throughout the building. They date from the opening of the addition in 1985 and are all beyond their useful life. We are paying above the service contract to fix components as they fail. The thermostats absolutely do not work and are still pneumatic. The new ones will be digital and we will be able to eliminate the compressor completely. The compressor is another piece of equipment that we annually sink money into above the service contract costs. As an added bonus removing the compressor will reduce noise in the room used by the seniors for cards and bingo.

2) To replace the carpet on the first floor which also dates to the opening of the addition and is in very poor shape after 30 years (The carpet in the Dearborn Redden Room and Teen corner are much newer and are not included in this plan. The lower level also has much newer carpet that does not need replacing at this time). The plan is to replace with carpet squares since that will allow us to repair stains over the life of the new carpet effectively.

See the slideshow below for more information.
