The Staunton Public Library may be getting a makeover.

It started out as an elementary school in 1916 and the librarians say, since then, obviously a lot has changed. From the technology to the way people get information to the services a library offers, they contracted an architectural firm to study the space and figure out how to modernize.

"We thought it was important to look at the building again with fresh eyes, bring in somebody new to look at the building, and help us figure out what's the best way to arrange our space to take the most advantage of the technology," said Ruth Arnold, director of library services.

The project will take six months. Architects will also meet with the staff, library board, and the public to take in ideas.
