The progress of your new library building!

The meeting room is pictured above.
If you've driven by at night, you've probably already noticed that the interior lights are on and operable.
The service desks are complete.
There are just two elements of the building yet to arrive -- the meeting room blinds and the silver letters that will say "Marshalltown Public Library" on the exterior. Once the blinds are here, a "flush-out" of the whole building will be conducted to clear out all the dust and particles that accumulated during the construction.
The architects will do a "punch list" walk-through tomorrow to verify building details.

Even though it seems like it . . not all the lights have been lit 24 hours a day. Since the building hasn't been occupied, our construction superintendent had to weigh security vs electricity to run the lights. Finally, the electricians (just today!) have set the lighting timeclock to turn the lights on and off on a more reasonable schedule. We will be glad when library staff are able to operate the lights and lighting timeclock ourselves!
