Well, not really two steps back. One step, though. We will need to remain closed on Thursday, September 29th. The new sidewalk is half done, and we hope it will be completed tomorrow. Please help spread the word about the continued closure. More people than I expected have tried to come in or return materials, walking around and through a hazardous work zone to do so. If it were safe to open we would. But it's really not. While I am grateful to see how much our library means to people, I really, really hope you will give the workers the space and time they need to complete their job.
Middle days of projects always seem to frustrate me. the enthusiasm of day one has dimmed, and all I can focus on is "but there's so much left to do." Today was no exception. Thankfully, I have an outstanding staff who is easing me through the front entrance rehab and interior spruce-up.
