Construction is Proceeding with Equipment and Furnishings Arriving Daily

Construction is proceeding at the library and 
equipment is arriving daily. 

Four new lateral files were installed and the Surname Files and Locality Files are now located there.

Drywall installation is now complete and taping is now taking place in preparation for painting in the new storeroom.

Paver installation is continuing in the front entrance. The masons have done a lot of work in the patio also.

Lateral files and steel shelves have been moved into the new storeroom.

The new tables have arrived and are in use by two of our librarians, Emily and Kathie.

The new tables have power outlets in the top. Patrons can bring their laptop computers and get "plugged in."
