Compact Shelving Update
I am delighted to announce that we cleared a major hurdle today. The Public Facilities committee of the Beaufort County Council approved our request for funding of the compact shelving array for the Paul Siegmund Room around 5 pm this afternoon. Hurray! David Hughes, County Engineering, did a good job of presenting our request.
The full Council will discuss the matter on 12 April. Keep your fingers crossed that the project gets approved, the shelves installed, and the collection relocated to the 2nd floor before Hurricane Season 2010 begins June 1st.
Thanks to all who've donated to the Compact Shelving Fundraiser. Your advocacy and donations have been crucial in getting the project this far.
