As you will see, the scaffolding company erected the scaffolding today in a matter of hours. We are in the process of getting lights installed under the roofs of the walkways but this may take a day or so, please be careful.
The Library Board of Trustees is awaiting the full report of the engineer who inspected the roof last week. Last night we saw some photographs of the roof (from the roof) taken by our contractor, Doug Renna. The pictures show the source not only of the library leaks but the reason why bits of the building have fallen off. We can expect more this winter as water gets in the cracks and freezes, causing the stone to separate. This is why you will soon see a safety fence erected around the building so no one can be near the areas where there may be falling masonry.
The Board is assessing its options in terms of the repair of the roof with the help of the engineer, Doug Renna, and Fred Stelle.
