East Library Construction Update

East construction 07-06-13 2.JPGWhile we're getting used to our temporary location, demolition of the old East Library site is already underway. There's a big hole where the back windows used to be, and the parking lot itself is a large pile of rubble.
The colorful stained glass panels, which were a distinctive feature of the old East Library, are in the process of being removed. The plan is to use them in the new East Library, so although the building itself will be shiny and new, there will be a unique piece of the old library incorporated into the design.
Once demolition is finished, the exciting part can begin--the construction of the new "Standard @ East Library" building and the library itself. We'll post more updates and photos as things develop!
