January Construction Report

January- A very cold month thus far, but work has continued at the library. The workers have begun placing the next phase of the copper roof on the new addition. The block walls have been just about complete, and work has begun on the brick exterior. Rough plumbing and electrical work continues. In the interior portions of the first level, carpenters have begun framing in the new spaces where the original children's room once stood.

Meanwhile, material selection for carpeting, paint and furnishings is ongoing as the interior design committee has met quite frequently. Also, design on the new interior signage has begin and should be completed by early Spring.
