Library Renovation


The beginning of the renovation of our neighborhood library.  Because I use it extensively, I feel bereft without it even though another one close by has been doing a wonderful job of taking care of the overflow of patrons to their facility.

Linking to Good Fences.

  3. The building, from what I can see of it, looks rather large - more like a city library than a neighborhood library. But Minnesota often does things right, so this kind of renovation doesn't surprise me. In fact, you'll soon have a magnificent library in which to spend your days, and I'd make book on that!

  5. It will be back in operation before you know it. At least that's what I keep telling myself when I go to the botanical garden. A big construction project started right after the Chihuly exhibit left and there are fences just like this everywhere in the garden.
    I see from your book list that you've already read Delicious. I just bought it.

  9. I can imagine being impatient for it to be finished...even if you have another to go to. The work will be done before too long at least.

  10. I check out most of my books through the "online" library. But it would be hard to go without, so I feel your pain!

  12. We had renovations at my local branch some years ago. While it was closed, the library opened up a small kiosk in a couple of offices nearby.

  18. Look at it this way: it's being improved, not closed. Libraries in California were facing much reduced hours when I was there...and even the ones here in Washington were offering fewer hours for a while there.
