February Renovation Update

The expansion foundation is now complete, and with the external structure in place construction crews are working to install windows and exterior finishes! Inside, the bottom floor is almost finished with drywall, while the framing is complete for the upstairs. Construction is beginning on built-in book shelves throughout the upper level as well. Since our last update, the grand staircase is completed, along with the large atrium area allowing natural light to flood our library centerpiece!

The look and feel of each individual space is starting to come together. We’re also excited about the addition of art display spaces and an increased fish tank in the children’s area. Planning has begun on opening weekend activities and we’re fine tuning the details of later summer fun programs in the new space. Lawrence, we think you’re going to love your new library!
