PAST CONSTRUCTION REPORTS
|Thanks to everyone who has worked to support this important community project.|
Last Update July 15, 2003
It has been an incredible year. So much work has progressed to the point that we are now preparing to receive furnishings and cabinetry. Carpeting and flooring is an ongoing item along with painting and installing the electrical fixtures. The historic renovation in the front reading rooms is doing quite well and it is now only a matter of weeks until the project is complete.
We continue to give site tours and if you are interested in a visit to the new library, please feel free to conatct Betty Chelmow at 781.828.1626 Tours are by appointment only and are scheduled on Saturday mornings. Hard soled shoes are highly recomended.
