Memorial Brick Walk Under Way

Memorials for Dee Trout and Judy Pegg paid for the recently completed gazebo on the north side of the library, which was completed on November 21st with volunteer help from members of the local Veterans of Foreign Wars, Haysville Pride, the Haysville Friends of the Library and others (see our earlier posts here and here).

Now, work is beginning on the memorial brick walkway that leads to the gazebo. A number of dedicated bricks have been waiting to be set since our move into the new library (see our earlier posts here and here), while new ones have been fired, and some of those now at the library front entrance will be relocated to the new memorial walkway.

Memorial bricks continue to be available from the Haysville Community Library Foundation. For more information, contact Library Director Betty Cattrell.

Gazebo Construction 2

At 8:30 Saturday morning, November 21, members of the local Veterans of Foreign Wars, Haysville Pride, the Haysville Friends of the Library and other volunteers set to work building the Haysville Community Library’s new gazebo on the north side of the library, and relocating the memorial bell to its new location near the flagpoles and the gazebo. (For earlier construction work on the gazebo foundation and walkway, see our previous post, Gazebo Construction).

Gazebo Construction

The Haysville Community Library’s new gazebo will be constructed this coming Saturday, November 21st, in the open area to the north of the library and south of the library’s northern parking lot.

The Haysville Friends of the Library, Haysville Pride, and the local Veterans of Foreign Wars, among others, have volunteered their time and energy to meet between 8:30 and 9:00 AM on Saturday morning for our own contemporary interpretation of an old-fashioned barn-raising. Others are encouraged to volunteer, and every hand will be welcome – and fed a hot lunch. With good luck, and your help, we’ll finish by early afternoon.

The gazebo, a smaller version of the large gazebo across from the library in the historical district, will be open to the public as soon as completed, but the official dedication will not take place until spring 2010.

Here’s a quick review of the work that’s been done to date:

Final Road Construction Begins

After weeks of weather-induced delays that have frustrated the diligence and patience of the Public Works department, final road construction on South Hays resumed today, and, weather permitting, should be completed soon. Roadwork completion will also allow the final landscaping work to be finished in front of the library.

Library Road Construction

Construction work on South Hays in front of the new library has picked up again, with a large crew at work on curbing. Despite appearances, the north parking lot remains open to library patrons.

Road Construction

Don’t be concerned by all the road construction activity on South Hays — the new library is up and running. While the north end of the street is being laid, you’ll just need to use the far south entrance. (The north parking lot is closed.)

Paving should be complete by about the end of August. We’re sorry for the inconvenience — but you’ll like the results.
