Construction Update

Just wanted to show how construction of the Bradford Washburn Mountaineering Museum is impacting the library. As you may already know, the museum is being built right next door to the library. It is a partnership between the American Alpine Club, Colorado Mountain Club, and National Geographic Society.
This temporary wall was built to minimize dust and noise in the library as the original wall behind it comes down. Over the next few months, a set of doors will be installed that will replace the original wall. The doors will open into a brand-new reading room that the library and museum will use as a shared resource. The reading room will allow access into the museum.
In the meantime, the museum is really shaping up! It is scheduled to open in late winter 2008 and will be one of the world’s leading resources for mountains, mountaineering, and mountain cultures. Check out their blog.
