The redesign of this site continues. I'd say something like, I appreciate your patience, blah blah blah... but let's face it, a site neglected for ten years or more need make no apologies. Any sign of life is a plus.
Mobile (I'll start calling them smart when they act that way) phones are one priority. It's essential for a website to be browsable on smaller devices these days, with new navigation and special considerations for a narrow viewport. We've gone with the recognizable "hamburger" menu, which, if you are reading this on a phone, is visible in the upper right.
But overall, the layouts need to make better use of available screen real estate to present content in a prominent and uncluttered manner. The legibility of text, I've noticed as I now sashay into my late forties, is not a given for all users, so I've blown it up considerably for desktop browsing. Is it too much? Let me know what you think. For now the plan is to move this new typography into the Public Library as well.
