childrens room

This is a neat view from the reading room into the side Children’s room during the removal of the paneling.
The paneling is removed from the front room but is still hanging in the back room.
You can see the original layers of  lathe and board that existed under the paneling.
Also, the original wood floor can be seen.

beams

The demolition made it possible to put in new supports to strengthen the ceiling and floor.

The yellow beams are the new super-strong supports. They were sistered in along side the original beams to make these areas stronger.

This is what the inside of the library looked like…

The ceilings and floor were taken out resulting in piles of rubble for the dumpster.
