Main Library Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony Marks Completion of Restroom Renovations
The Main Boulder Public Library will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony Friday, Jan. 24 at 10:05 a.m.
to recognize the completion of the restroom renovations. The ceremony will take place on the first floor and light refreshments will be served. Mayor Sam Weaver, members of Out Boulder, the mural artists and the project architects will all be in attendance.
The new changes allow patrons to use their choice of restrooms with both gender-specific and all-gender options available. The restrooms have improved accessibility, upgraded fixtures, functionality and are ADA compliant. The restrooms are intended to be safe and welcoming to any person, including caregivers and people with disabilities.
The new restrooms include colorful murals by artists Monica Cervone McElwain (first floor) and Chris Huang (second floor). The murals are the first public art project completed since the City of Boulder adopted a percent for art rule. This project used 1% of its overall construction budget to integrate new murals into the restrooms.
