Steel structure
The steel was erected in a little over a week; it was supposed to take many more! This is the back of the library; the entrance is at the top right, the front left parallels East Avenue. The river is in the back, with the ClockTower barely visible in the center, just to the left of the rear A frame.
Children's library
The second floor of the building will house the children's library, which will provide scenic views of the Clear River (foreground). The parents area of the children's room projects out over the riverwalk, which runs in front of the building. See the completed view.
