Moving Week 2 - From the old to the new

Last week, the library's collection was moved from the old to the new building in three days time and furniture was installed.  This week, the staff will sort the new collection and begin to put what remains in place on the shelves.  Take a look at the pics above to see what's been going on and to get a glance at the progress of some of the new areas of the library!

Moving! Moving! Moving!

Wednesday, March 17. Four eighteen wheelers of furniture and 3 panel vans, 20 carts each, several runs per van all on one day, plus the shelving installers finishing the install of shelves and you have the beginnings of chaos. 
 
Throw in the library staff helping move supplies and loading the books from carts to the shelves and the furniture installers starting right in with install almost before the trucks were unloaded and I believe it went from beginning chaos to a full-blown whirl-wind of activity.
 
Thursday, March 18. Looking at yesterday after a good night’s sleep I can see that we had the very good fortune of excellent workmen and library staff. All waited their turn patiently for elevator rides to move their furniture or books; everyone helped each other, no matter which crew they belonged to or which job

Moving Week 1 - Moving right along!

The second floor shelving for the adult services area is in place in the new building, and now the shelving for the children's area is being installed!  This week, the staff anticipates to begin moving the library's collection from the old building to the new building.  Take a look at the slide show above to see what's in place, and stay tuned right here each week for updates on our progress!

Almost ready to move!

Take a look above at the latest progress going on at the new library building!  Shelving for the collection has been delivered and is currently being assembled for the second floor adult services area.  After that, the children's shelving will be installed and then the moving will begin! 

Video Game Tournament!

Hey, teens!  Did you know that the new library building here in Kingwood will have a video gaming room just for you guys and girls?  We'll have four Sony PS3s and a Nintendo Wii plus four 32-inch HDTVs available anytime you feel like playing!  While we're not scheduled to open the new building until Monday, April 19th, we plan on kicking off our grand opening that day with our first Gaming Tournament, complete with prizes and plenty of games to choose from.  We'll open at 10:00 AM that day, but if you find yourself at school, no problem.  You can come anytime, but we expect to get things going between 3:00 and 4:00 PM that day and plan to play till we close at 9:00 PM.  Tell all your friends about it!  Don't miss this fun, free activity at the new Kingwood Branch Library building!
