Coming Down To the Wire - Renovations in the last stages

After months of work and passionate thinking the Barney Library is very near to renovation completion.
A new furnace, remodeled space, a new elevator, the addition of a teen's area are just some of the changes.
Painting and finishing work have yet to happen, but the structural componet is complete.
It is going to be so beautiful when it opens again in late fall.

The restrooms will be fabulous!
A peek into the first floor play room, it will hold a train table and chairs for parents

View of the children's room, on the first level, features natual light and a clean spacious feel.
The second floor gallery room will have new base boards and molding.
The open doors have been replaced by full length windows.

On the second floor there is an entrance to the gallery and community room
The elevator makes it easy to go from downstairs to up.

The Bookdrop loads inside so books will be protected from the elements.

Second Floor holds a new Program Room for Children's presentations and storytimes/
This newly remodeled area includes a brand new elevator, an inside bookdrop and single paned widows.
This is the outside view.
