The first wall has been poured!!!!

Wow! The first thing that I saw as I approached the site today was this long yellow crane arm moving into position. Evidently this is necessary to move the concrete from the cement truck to the front wall of the building.
Here you can see the operator positioning the arm with a remote control device. There were controls to move up, down, left, right, etc., but no TURBO. Still it is a very impressive toy.
Here another worker moves the nozzle to distibute the flow of concrete, watching closely to keep the coverage consistent.
Here other workers use a tool to vibrate the poured concrete inside the forms, reducing the chance for any voids in the wall.

Finally, a first look at the sign which will be displayed prominently at the worksite. Soon everyone will know about the new library that is coming.
