October Renovation Update

Life is moving quickly in the library renovation world. Since our last post, the Vermont Street garage was completed, foundation has been laid for parts of the library expansion, and framing is already started on the bottom level of our renovated building. Although several factors determine the opening, our hope is to be up and running in the summer of 2014. Dates will fluctuate, but we will give you more specifics further down the road.

Below are photos from the beginning of October. Structurally, significant changes are taking place, which may be difficult to distinguish in photographs but prove to be great progress. The roof is set to be installed before winter weather approaches in November and December. Storm drains, plumbing and electrical lines are in the works, and concrete for new walls has begun!
