The Library

As I've mentioned before, our local branch of the library is undergoing renovation and a big addition. My daughter, Rita will be working a bit farther away from home for a few months, until the construction is finished.

This is how it has looked up until the present time. Not exactly my favorite, architecturally speaking.


This is how it looks today. They seem to be making pretty good time with the construction. Let's hope that continues, and there are no bad delays due to weather related problems.





















This is the temporary quarters, with boxes of books waiting to be shelved.
























They are sandwiched between a nail parlor and a Chinese restaurant.

At least they won't have far to go for lunch while working there.

The weather could definitely set them back a bit given the time of year-though hopefully it won't!
Thank you Bobbie for the nice words about my Dad's retirement. I can't wait for him to read them after he sleeps in tomorrow!

How wonderful that they are upgrading your library. Our library system in Hawaii is in deep trouble. They're closing them more than rebuilding any.

I'm sure the library will look great when they're done.
