Library Lovers Month, expansion


Before February is over, let's have a post for Library Lovers Month!

Our town's library is being enlarged, and on December 4 the day came when all the material in the main reading room had to be moved away so the builders could build.
Students and their teacher from the school across the street came in to help.
These two used their legs to maneuver a book shelf.

When I approached on foot and heard the lively music from this speaker, I knew something very unusual was happening in the normally quiet library.

I guess the girls were waiting for instructions from the librarians.

Behind the hedge and the scaffolding you can see the fresh gray concrete of the new addition.

Outside on the trash bin was this nice scale model of the library made by a 3rd-grader.

Kind of painful to see holes in the wall, especially during Library Lovers Month.

Meitar's library was built in 2003.
The community, founded in 1984, is expanding and it is time for a bigger library.
The construction work has been going on for many months, and we will be glad when the library reopens, bigger and better.
P.S. Here is a post about the library in former (normal) days of activity
(with a bonus pic of granddaughter Libby!).

I do like the design of the building. Hopefully the work goes smoothly.

The fresh grey concrete of the new addition still looks a bit bunker-like, but perhaps they will finish it off with tiles or stone. Or posters! Anything to attract the children.

Bit of a shame it wasn't finished in time Dina, but just think how wonderful it will for next year! It certainly looks like a sturdy affair to keep all those books and readers safe.

Pity library day wasn't today... Hope it gets finished pronto!
