Through the windows

I am always looking in windows to see what is inside. So I did the same for you. These are pictures taken from the outside and through the windows. Some places had the shades down so those rooms are not in the “walk around” of the building. You will see the shadows and reflections in […]

Entrance sign

If you drive up Eastern Avenue, you can now see the entrance sign. As part of our LEED process, the letters are backlit. This means we will not be polluting the surrounding area with lights but you will see the letters announcing the library. It is hard to believe we only have 3 more weeks […]

Copper wall

Contractors were out several days ago polishing the copper wall. Now it can age gracefully without any excess materials that might have been dripped, splashed or blown against the wall with the construction of other parts of the building. Doesn’t the rock look nice along the bottom? This will help the water drain when it […]

Inside the Library

The inside of the library is finally looking like a library! We have all the books on the shelves except for the NEW books and teen books. We are missing the shelves so those are sitting on top of units or around the edges of the building. With our capable staff, we have already finished […]

Books and more books

The staff spent two days unloading 33,400 pounds of materials. It took approximately 2 hours to unload 31 pallets of boxes and distribute them around the building. We then took about 4 hours each day to unbox the items and put them on the shelves. That is equivalent to 40,000 items. We are now putting the […]
