April 2019 Building Update

Building Progress Update

By Kara Bauman

Some of you may have noticed that the construction trailer used as an on-site office was removed the first week of April. That means the Owner/Architect/Contractor Team was able to hold the very first meeting in the new library on April 10th! While it was a momentous occasion, there is still a lot of loud work taking place and none should be too jealous just yet. The progress is really something with many exciting milestones to report. The Library was able to square away everything with its transformer and now has permanent power. The natural gas line will be completed during the week of April 15th and will fuel both the hot water heater and our gorgeous stone-faced fireplace located in the Quiet Reading Room. Book shelving has been ordered and many of the furniture finishes have been determined and ordered. Following the necessary application of a moisture-mitigation product to our concrete slab, carpet for the main collections space and the luxury vinyl tile chosen for the large Community Room will be laid during the week of the 15th.  Restrooms throughout the building are looking much more official now that toilets have been installed.
