Maxine Bleiweis begins her tenure as Library Director in January. Building renovations are completed in June and the new Library is formally dedicated on October 4. It has 51,160 square feet of space, an increase of 45 percent. The River of Names tile mural is unveiled. Created by ceramicist Marian Grebow, the mural is funded by contributions from 1,100 donors. The Friends of the Library store opens, offering gifts and library-related items. 845 children sign up for the summer reading program, topping the previous high of 500. The first summer reading scavenger hunt was created to help people acquaint themselves with the new Library. The first compact disc versions of audiobooks were offered for loan in addition to the tape version.
