Seems some of the work got a bit behind schedule so lights were brought in to allow work to continue
Lights were brought in so work could continue at night
And work they did! Look how much progress has been made since the last posting.

Speaking of the Plaza…it is full of stacks of lumber, stacks of rebar, tons of machinery, and a lot less liriope.
Will the planters come back???
The weatherproofing appears to be about complete on the bridge. The Library Staff is curious to see what comes next and what type “bricks” will be provided.
The weatherproofing is almost done
While all this has been going on OUTSIDE, Monday the crew started “refurbishing” Northen. “Refurbishing” refers to primarily cosmetic changes – paint, carpet, furnishings, etc. “Renovation” involves structural changes. Just as a reminder, here is Northen as they were getting started.
Northen BEFORE, remember the plaid carpet?
And here is what it looked like yesterday (Tuesday, 8/3)
Northen AFTER the carpet and furniture were removed
Northen is scheduled to be closed until mid-October. It should be well on its way by the time classes start.
