Odegaard Library is closed for Winter Break, December 15, 2013 through January 6, 2013. The library will re-open on Monday, January 7 at 8am.
Our contractor, Mortenson Construction, and several sub-contractors are making great progress on the renovation during the break. Glass walls on the third floor are being built. What the contractors call the “dance floor” will be removed; it provided access to build the skylight and the wood slat ceiling. Soffits on the 2nd and 3rd floors are being painted (and repaired where needed.) The renovation of the entry lobby on the 1st floor has begun. The lobby is being divided approximately in half with the north side planned to be a comfortable seating area. For now, that side of the lobby will continue to be used as the entry lobby.
