We are about ready to MOVE the business operations from the old wing into the Fireplace Room temporarily until the librarians' office is completed. In the meantime, the bookcase crew is finishing the last of the pieces needed for the second four bookcases, exterior work has begun to level the grounds, dig trenches for drains, irrigation lines, and electrical conduits.
Yes, a lot is going on just now, and we'll be calling out for help very soon to move furniture, assemble those bookcases, and move books, because until that work is completed, renovation of the old wing cannot commence. So thanks to lot of volunteers who have already put in over 1200 hours on the bookcases alone, we are just about ready to MOVE into the new wing!! Come on down and enjoy the fun!! We can use YOU!!

|The garden has been cleared of weeds and smoothed out to plot the locations of walkways, drain lines, electrical conduits, and irrigation lines.|
|Each shelf in the old stacks has been numbered for the eventual MOVE to the new stacks.|
|And here we are - a successful test set-up of three bays of just one of the new bookcases!|
