Building construction nears an end!

It won't be long now!  Construction on the new Kingwood Branch Library building by SpawGlass is almost complete!  A target opening date has not been settled and is unlikely before the beginning of 2010, but the building process is expected to be finished by the end of this year.  Take a look at the slide show below to see how construction has transitioned over the last several months!
