EXTERIOR LIBRARY BUILDING PROJECT HAS BEGUN

The Library’s exterior building sealing project started May 17.  A perimeter fence has been set up around the library, but the entrance and exits will remain usable. The portico [covered walkway] is closed.

THE REGULAR LIBRARY ENTRANCE IS STILL ACCESSIBLE. At some point in the project, the entrance will be closed in order to do a total re-build, and people will enter/exit from the south door. We will make announcements when this begins.

The project completion date is August 11.  Staging areas for construction equipment include the front patio area. Work will begin on the front (East) side of the building.  This will include caulking removal, re-seal and cleaning.  This must be done before work on new curtain walls and storefront window can begin.
