Almost ready to move in. . .

The creation of a new Berea location has been long in coming and is now nearly complete. We are poised to take occupancy on March 10th. Beyond that we will close our temporary location at 5pm March 15th and work feverishly over the next 4 weeks to prepare for our grand re-opening. Below are some pictures of the building as it appears today, Thursday, March 6th:

New sidewalks are going in.

Carpet is being installed.

The lighting has been put up (and doesn't the children's area look great?)

The fireplace is in, and the mantles are being put into place. (Special thanks to local artisan Doug Haley for the loan of his shop and tools which were used in the creation of these mantlepieces.)

A second shot of the children's area...

and the Young Adult area.

The circulation desk location

Soon 34 theater seats will be placed in this room. This will be a fine place for presentations, our Independant Film screenings, and movie nights.

You can never go home again, but you can bring some of it with you. The tiles and tin ceiling were preserved from our old building, and now occupy places of prominence in the new library.
