Work Inside!

We are getting ready for Downes to start work in the Children’s Room. The room is now empty of all their materials.

The Children’s and the Teen collections, along with the toys, are now in what once housed the adult collection. The trains, the dollhouse and various toys are available for playtime. The AWE computers will soon follow.

When you have the proper tools and equipment walls can be raised.

From Concrete to Framing the Building Continues!

Over the past few weeks, Mizzy Construction Company worked on the concrete slab for the two additions in the back of the library.

 

Then Downes Construction Company and Mizzy Construction Company worked together to raise the first of the frames for the back additions.

Construction Progress!

Hello Everyone!
If you have visited the library lately, you will know that our construction project is progressing rapidly in several areas. In the back of the library, the trucks and backhoes are busy all day bringing in dirt and filling in the new foundations. We even have the rough plumping in place for the new toilet in Children’s.
Watching all that activity is better than watching TV!

Progress of the new Community Room

The rough plumbing for the new bathroom in the Children’s Room.

Inside the library, this area used to house our Local History collection and is now completely different. The walls are gone and the space is open. This area will eventually house our new materials and media. The space even has the finishing touches complete with fresh paint and our beautiful new carpet.

This area used to be the Teen Area and Beginning Readers (BGs) material but will eventually house our new Middle School section for grades 5 to 8.

This is the beginning stages of the Local History Room.
This used to be our Community Room.

What used to be part Community Room and
Craft Area will soon be the Teen Department.

Every day we see more progress!
We are pleased with the results so far. Please stop by and check us out.
