    If only our re-arrangement had come with a budget. Despite doing 90% of the work ourselves the Maine State Library has managed to create a much more open and user friendly space. With the exception of a tiger greeting our patrons there is nothing flashy about the new look. It has been very satisfying to make over the space.

    So awesome to see how creative some libraries are!
