We just had to show everyone how BEAUTIFUL our building looks, after the PAINTING of the ceiling, walls, and trim in the main area of our LIBRARY!
It really brightened up and freshened up everything throughout!This was a perfect project to complete… to help CELEBRATE our building’s 30TH YEAR!
Of course, we couldn’t have accomplished such a huge project without a bunch of help!
THANK-YOU to all of our patrons, for their patience and understanding during the two weeks we were closed to the public!
A HUGE THANK-YOU to all of the guys (from the City of Central City departments) that helped move A LOT of: furniture, bookshelves, giraffes,computer equipment, etc.!
