Construction of the Clinch Library will be finished in about two weeks. Mike (pictured above) spent several days painting the 40’x24′ room. Mike was a huge help when we were moving everything out of the space to prepare for construction. There would have been some broken backs if it weren’t for him.
Earlier this week, Brad from Advanced Systems installed the rails on which the seven 32′ carriages will be placed. You can see him checking to be sure each rail is perfectly level and exactly the same height as the other rails.
The plywood deck was installed yesterday. Its purpose is to provide a floor surface that is flush with the rails. The entire floor will be tiled over by the end of next week. The mobile carriages will go in immediately thereafter.
It will be a long time before the whole library is relocated to Golden from California, but the first books are scheduled to arrive on October 24 – one day after the final shelf goes in.
