This guide will inform the campus about the library renovation.

Exterior Renovation

The workers begin drilling up the concrete.

This construction project began with some deconstruction!

In order to update the library entrance they first had to demolish the existing sidewalk and stairs.

Outdoor construction projects in the winter...

During a few of the really cold and windy days, the construction project had to be put on pause. We are still on schedule for our completion date though!

It's like the Hotel California, you can checkout any book you'd like but you can never leave!

Don't worry everyone, a temporary entrance has been created on the side of our building while the main doors are inaccessible.

This entrance used to be a window in the Library Director's office. If you need to find Ronalee she's moved to another office on the main floor of the library.

You can see the skeleton of our new covered entrance in this photo.

Construction of the new entrance to the library is proceeding, with the pouring of concrete for the new entrance ramp from the corner of East Wheeling and South Lincoln streets to our front doors.

A roof is installed for our new covered entrance to the library.
