Construction is progressing well at the Port Washington Public Library, according to Library Director Nancy Curtin. In a telephone conversation on Feb. 12, she explained that the glass-extended portion of the building has been completed, with the exception of the front portion. The steel for this front section has been erected, however.
Moreover, if you see people on the building's rooftop, don't panic; they are supposed to be there. The roof work is scheduled to get underway this week.
Once the roof is finished, and the building fully enclosed, interior renovations will continue. This will probably occur around the beginning of March. Much of the inside work has already been done, Ms. Curtin explained, but some sheetrock work and wiring need to be finished.
"We are still aiming for a late June opening," Ms. Curtin said, a statement that's bound to please Port readers. Some special events celebrating the library's re-opening are being planned, too.
