The renovations are actually proceeding on schedule. The installation of the carpet finished over the weekend thanks to the willingness of one of our staff members to spend her entire Saturday at work. The rest of the staff appreciates your sacrifice.
We are in the home stretch now as the new cubicle, excuse me, open office space, walls are being installed. The furniture installation will finish today. Staff will use the rest of the week to move into their new offices and to set up the resources in the reading room. We plan to reopen to the public on February 2, 2009 as scheduled. We hope that you will stop by to see the new reading room. We also hope to host at least one open house this year in honor of our 40th anniversary. See you soon!
