The Fence is Up & Construction
is Underway!

Doyle Construction has been busy! They spent the first two weeks of September coordinating with their subcontractors and placing orders for the materials they will need to build this community a beautiful new library. P.S. There is a big backlog on Anderson Windows.
"This will be my office," says Library Director Hali Taylor (right).

And, exactly where she is standing really will be, FINALLY, after all these years,
her office!

FYI, to her right will be the Adult area, behind will be the Gretchen Weigel Memorial Wing (for children and young adults), and to her left will be Media, Meeting and other interesting rooms.
We will be posting photos of construction as it happens on our website. Details coming soon!
Safe snacks and beverages will be provided!
