End of a cold month!

The interior work continues to progress. The ceiling grid has been installed.

Staff workroom gets a first coat. In a few months, customers will be able to pick up their requested books from this drive-thru window - a convenience on days like today!

The storytelling room gets walls and windows!

January progress

Although the rains hindered the roof and brick completion (and made the site a little muddy), exterior and interior work continues to progress. Window and door installation continues and stucco work has begun.

Electrical work continues. Ceramic tile is being installed. Painting should begin soon. The ceiling grid will go in this month. The colored glass blocks are up in the storytelling room.

We opened bids in December on the furniture packages and are working on the contracts. The landscaping and irrigation system package should be ready for bidding later this month.
