Recent Rains Don't Slow Addition Library Construction

In spite of the recent inclement weather, one of the rainiest Decembers in Santa Barbara history, few days were lost in construction of the addition to the Sahyun Library.  Tony, Bruce, and Carlos focused on tying the roof trusses together and to the wall framing, and they placed rafters across the front of the building.  All this work gives the structure a more closed in feeling and continues on schedule to completion.
