April 22: The outline of the new entry and rooftop terrace are visible, and walls are coming up! If you blink, you may miss the progress as changes are happening every day. This phase of construction is scheduled to be complete by summer of this year, with the rest of the project finished by year’s end.
The renovation is progressing on schedule and walls to the new entry are starting to take shape. Please note that the library will be closed on Friday, March 22 as sanitary lines are excavated and repaired. Closing is necessary as the parking lot and bathrooms will be unavailable. No items will be due that day – thank you for your patience.
During the week of January 7 – 11, the Youth Services Department will move into the Auditorium for the duration of the project. This move will take a few days and we ask for your patience as some materials may take longer for us to find until we are settled in.
This week our construction manager at risk, Downes Construction Company, installed their Field Office Trailer on site. In the next few weeks, entry to the building from the back parking lot will be directed through the staff entrance next to the book drop. The front entry and steps will remain unchanged throughout the project.
