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…

Gearing up!

The Official Evelyn Meador Branch Library Groundbreaking!

 

Here is what we’ve been waiting for!
The official Groundbreaking Celebration for the new and improved Evelyn Meador Branch Library will be held Friday, February 19th, 2010 at 12:00 PM.
The Friends Board will host a short reception afterwards on site.

A Makeover for Pearl

Meet Pearl the Pelican. Pearl recently underwent a makeover, and we think she looks great! The new and improved Pearl was unveiled at the Evelyn Meador Friend’s Annual Spaghetti Dinner at Bay Elementary School on January 29th. Along with our library, she was damaged by Hurricane Ike.  Pearl is one of many pelicans in the Seabrook area that are part of the Pelican Path Project, sponsored by the Seabrook Association. Tom Diegelman is coordinating the restoration of a number of the PPP pelicans needing repairs due to the storm. Pearl was originally designed and painted by Rosanne Frazier. Her rennovation was completed by another local artist, Marianne Filler.
