Phase II of the building project has been progressing steadily since late April.  Once again with the framing of the new spaces we can see the shape of what will soon be.  Phase II encompasses a new small meeting room, restrooms for the public, a green room for performers, an office for the library’s adult programmer, a handicapped accessible lift to the stage, and most excitingly, a complete renovation of the auditorium and gallery program and meeting rooms.

Construction Completes Phase I... On to Phase II

We’re moving today!  As I type this, the new children’s department is just about finished. Nearly all the shelves are up and thousands of books are now being shelved, along with movies, recorded books, and magazines.  The children’s staff are working hard to move bags and bags of craft supplies because the new children’s room has a really beautiful, very functional program room with a large screen, a sink, and working stove, a projector and lots and lots of storage cabinets.

The world is alive with color! That’s how it feels when I look at the newly painted walls in the new children’s area. We have selected some truly delicious colors that might almost remind you of tasty sherbet on a sunny summer day! The paints have intriguing names too: Melange Green, Bosporus, Mythical, and Green Bay. The effect is delightful and will help make the new children’s room a very special place to visit.

Some exciting progress has been made over the past two weeks.  We can now see many of the rooms and offices because they have been framed, and in some cases the dry wall is up.  We have paint samples on the walls so we can see how the various colors will coordinate.  The colors are truly lovely! The color palette is both sophisticated and charming!

The renovation is progressing smoothly. Several office areas have been framed, including the administrative offices, technical services department, and staff room.

There was a nice article about the building project in the November 30, 2016 Barrington Times that covered many aspects of the project. The article emphasized how pleased we are with the work of our contractor, ADS.

And now at long last the construction has begun! We are very excited about hiring a contractor (ADS, from East Providence) to do the construction of the 2nd floor building project.

At this point, the Children’s Room is located in the Gallery Room, with some children’s programming happening in the Auditorium.  The staff from technical services, administration, and community services have all been relocated to different parts of the library.
