9/13/2013: The concrete is now being poured to solidify the foundation.
9/11/2013: No, that's not a swimming pool, that's a vapor inhibitor that is spread through the entire foundation prior to the concrete being poured. This helps to stop moisture from coming up through the ground and causing damage to the foundation.
If you look closely you'll see a steal grating that is placed over the vapor inihibitor sheet. This grating will help the concrete maintain it's form.
8/28/2013: A new channel is being dug to connect vital voice, data and electric lines to the library.
The elevator shaft is starting to take shape
Various pipes are set up as the plubming infastructure begins.
Signs have gone up on the fence along the College Ave. side of the site.

Once the footing is dug wood and steel are used to secure the form.
Cement is then poured to create the initial perimiter and foundation.
