Fantastic Construction News!

Initially, the plan for our expansion was to first renovate our old space, and move back into that existing space temporarily in September (with a large portion of the collection remaining in storage), while construction continued in the new section well into winter. Our final move-in to the new space was slated for January. This meant that September-January we'd be putting up with an incomplete collection, and a general mess all around.

We've just received good news of a change in construction plans: Our contractor is focusing on completing the library expansion entirely, by sometime in October. Essentially, in exchange for opening about one month later than anticipated (and one month during which we'd have only been provisionally open), we're gaining two or three months of having construction completed in our new facility! We're thrilled, not only to share our new space with you sooner, but also to now have only have one more move facing us, instead of two.

Here's a photo of the expansion progress, taken today, one week after those in the previous post:

Keep watching here for construction updates!
