East Building Renovation Update
Construction in the East Building of the library has switched into high gear during the past months.  We have corrected all the issues that have been hindering the project and things are really starting to shape up nicely.  The walls have been put up, patched and painted.  The ductwork for the HVAC system is installed and operational.  The electrical work is completed and the fire alarm equipment for the building should be installed before the end of this month.  The doorway for the main entrance has been installed.  Lastly, both bathrooms have been tiled and are ready for the plumbing fixtures to be connected.  The goal at this time is to have everything ready for use in early Fall.  Thanks for all your patience.
