Things Are Moving According to Schedule

April 22nd #1

As of April 21st, 2010

This may just look like a bunch of dirt to some people, but to you and me and a few others in the know, this is exciting stuff.! All of this dirt being pushed around means we are on target for the new Evelyn Meador Branch Library coming in 2011! (We're hoping to have the slab poured by the end of May.)

Stay tuned for further developments!

 

 

Evelyn Meador Friends Annual Meeting

 

The Friends of the Evelyn Meador Library will hold their Annual Board Meeting on Thursday, April 22nd at the Seabrook Community House, located next to City Hall at 1210 Anders Avenue. Refreshments will be served at 6:30 and guest speaker Mary Sue Anton, author of New Madrid: a Mississippi River Town in history and legend (2009), will speak at 7:00 p.m. As always, the public is welcome!

Making Way for the New Evelyn Meador

Now that the old building is down, the work is going to start speeding up. Follow the construction process for the new building by reading this weekly blog.  Here are the latest pictures.

Some Photos from the Evelyn Meador Groundbreaking Ceremony.

For those of you who missed the official groundbreaking for the new Evelyn Meador building on February 19th, here are a couple of photos. Since then, both the building and the parking lot have been razed, making room for construction of the new facility to begin.

Saying goodbye to an old friend

Well, the old Evelyn Meador building is being demolished even as I write this post. I spent a lot of time there over the past eleven years (as did a lot other people). While I am certainly glad to make room for the new and improved library, it is still somewhat like saying goodbye to an old friend, one that you know intimately and realize you will never see again…
