The Pierson Library is getting closer to completion, as plywood sheathing and temporary windows are now in place.

Construction update

Lots of mud on site this week, but work continues. As the new electrical, plumbing, fire protection, and mechanical systems are finalized in town hall, the wallboard is beginning to be replaced in the basement.

The library roof should be completed by the end of this week and the plywood sheathing and temporary windows are in place. Each joint is being taped and carefully inspected to ensure that the building envelope has no penetrations, an important part of achieving an energy efficient building. 

Soon, if the weather stays warm enough, concrete decks will be poured for each floor, starting at the top and working downwards.

Thanks for your support of this municipal project and please remember to visit the library Facebook page for photos, www.facebook.com/piersonlibrary.

Library programs of note

If you have a little one and haven’t been to one of our two weekly story times, come by and check them out.  Join us every Monday to start off your week with stories with Patrice, and join volunteer Inger Dybfest for music, movement,
and good books every Thursday. Both story times start at 10:30 a.m. and no sign up is required.

Have you noticed the many new displays that AJ, our front desk guru, has been creating? Every week she aims to bring a new topic, event, genre or author into focus with a display. If you have a display idea, please let us know and we’ll try to make it happen.
