Goodbye dumpster; welcome home books. OPENING MARCH 28! RIBBON-CUTTING APRIL 2!

The dumpster is hauled awayOur refresh project has seemed at times like Richard Armour's funny poem about a condiment:

"Shake and shake / the catsup bottle / none will come / and then a lot'll." Everything in our library seemed a bit empty and very dusty for weeks and weeks. Now many things are happening all at once!

We said goodbye to the very large dumpster that carried away old carpet and ceiling tile and the detritus of the project.

We've already filled the shelves you see in these pictures.
