Room With a View Too

A few days ago Ms. Pearson and I were able to get our first look at the new building from the inside out. Here are a couple of photos you might enjoy. How about that view of the park?!

That hanging circular metal frame in the center of the picture is for the lighting over the children's information desk.

This picture is a bit dark, but it gives you a good idea of the view.

Greg, what's the latest

Greg, what's the latest forecast on the finish date? I drive by the new library frequently and am so looking forward to opening day. Betty Heverly

 

Hi Betty,

The completion date for the building is scheduled for sometime around the middle of February.  We're not sure about the opening date yet. The budget for the County is looking rather grim at this point. If you've been reading the paper, you know what I mean. The good news is that the opening is just a question of when and not if.  Of course, we are very excited and trying our best to be patient!

Greg, Thanks for the update.

Greg, Thanks for the update. That's a lot earlier than I thought it would be. I hope the county doesn't drag it out too much. Did the bond money include the cost of the computers, interior furnishings, books, etc.? Betty

The bond money does not cover equipment & furnishings. Some of that is built into the budget and some not. We are pretty much taking things a day at a time, and all I can really tell you at this point is that things are moving forward, though it may seem somewhat slow at times.
