OREM, Utah (AP) -- The Orem Public Library has received a facelift.

City officials say the $2 million renovation to the library's south wing is now complete with better lights and layout

Visitors can now browse through books in the newly painted, newly carpeted and seismically sound wing. Officials say the most notable changes --- besides new lighting --- are new carpet, updated bathrooms, glass panels along the railings and the relocation of the elevator.

Meanwhile, officials say additional foundations were added in the basement to bring the building up to seismic code.

Although they have NOT gained any space, library officials say they've made better use of it.
