Home Improvement: Crane’s Mill Library, Gift Box and Beauty Salon
Crane’s Mill is always improving its residents’ way of life. Right now, three fun areas of the campus are getting a face lift.
You may know that Crane’s Mill has a library, gift shop and beauty salon/barber shop right on campus. What you may not know is that all three of these spots are getting a makeover as we speak.
The library is a go-to location for residents on a daily basis. Completely run by resident volunteers, the library offers daily newspapers, computers with internet access, a copy machine, printers and more. Of course, there is a wide selection of fiction, non-fiction and reference books for an endless supply of page-turning learning and fun. The library’s renovation includes new carpet, paint, countertops, signage and more!
The Gift Box is also resident-run, with members of our community volunteering as much as once or twice per week or as little as a couple of hours a month. The Gift Box offers our residents a convenient location to pick up all sorts of handy items including greeting cards, candy, soap, and shampoo. There is an ever-changing array of offerings around the holidays, and a staff favorite includes unique jewelry such as handmade earrings. There are rumors of some brand-new product offerings coming after the new carpet, paint and shelving are complete!
The beauty salon and barber shop, located one floor below Towne Square, is truly a resident favorite. Staffed by professional beauticians, the salon is full service, so you can have your hair cut, washed and set, get your nails done, and men can take a little off the sides—all without going outside to get to your appointment.
Once complete, we will have a number of photos from each step of the process, so stay tuned! If you want to see the new spaces in person, please call us at 973-276-3001 or click here to send us an email—we look forward to hearing from you!
