The interior work starts!
All the exterior walls are built and it is time to work on the the many features of the interior. While construction moves inside, planning continues for details such as layout of shelving and for arrangements of furniture. A lot is going on "behind the scenes".
On the third floor the walls of the offices facing south have been framed. These offices are for the Branch Head, Operational Supervisor and the Library Service Manager.
Electrical wires running through conduits are protected against accidental damage. This building requires many outlets for computers - both library owned and laptops brought in by library users.
The back wall shows that framing has started for future drywall.
The second floor has retained the beautiful douglas fir ceiling beams from the old building. Those and the fireplace are all that is left of the old materials. The bright light from the many larger windows show off the wooden beams well.
The adult fiction and non-fiction shelving will stand under this ceiling. There will be soft chairs in front of the fireplace for a comfortable reading area.
