Gazebo Roof Completed

With the approach of spring, library patrons will be pleased to know that the memorial gazebo at the north end of the library has now been completed. Today, work crews completed the roof and installed benches.

As soon as nature begins to bloom, the gazebo should prove to be the perfect venue for reading, quiet contemplation or relaxed conversation. Come see for yourself.

(For more on the construction of the gazebo, see our earlier posts here, here and here.)
