GRAND OPENING DATE SET! May 2, 2017

We are finally ready to announce our re-opening.  Mark your calendars for Friday, July 14, 2017, as we will, once again, open the Library doors and invite the public in to see what we have been up to since January!

The carpeting is beginning to be installed today.  The Castle feature is up surrounds the children's seating area.  The water fountains (yes, we will have real, live, functioning water fountains) are installed and soon there will be water.  The lighting is almost completed, and the clouds look fantastic!  

The shelving is scheduled to arrive in early June.  Once it is installed and wiring is completed, AND we get the go-ahead from the inspectors, we will begin moving the collection back into the building.

After the shades for the front windows are installed, we will close them so that the finished product will be a surprise (and so you don't see us scrambling around as if we don't know what we are doing when the books are placed on the shelves - that will be a project and we don't want the public to see us sweating while we figure out exactly how everything will come together). So, peek in the windows while you still have the chance!

We are still open at the New Vision building.  Please visit us there and take pictures as it looks now.  Soon, it will stop looking like a library and go back to being a co-op building. 😊

PROGRESS AT THE LIBRARY! May 15, 2017

 
The Library Dragons have been busy at the construction site (notice their DIY hard hats) and are pleased at how well things are progressing.

You can see a top/bottom comparison between the architect firm’s rendering of the Library compared to the real-deal (as it stands today).

So exciting!

When will be back into the Library building on Maine Avenue, Adrian, Minnesota?  By the end of June or first part of July. 

Please make plans to visit us – before AND after our return to the permanent location!
