Be Careful What You Wish For

Five years ago this summer, we were in the final stages of converting the lower three floors of an office building into what is now our current library. That summer, each week a few of us would walk over to the new building, meander around the construction site with our mouths agape, marveling at how quickly the crews were completing the project, how smoothly construction was going, and taking photos. I was so excited I wished that I could share the experience with everyone.

This summer we are in the final stages of converting the fourth floor of the building into "The Illuminariam" a place where dreams and ideas are illuminated and come to life. It includes an auditorium, gallery space, a multimedia lab, computer lab, and more. This summer, each day, every single one of us, are experiencing the "joys" of living with construction. Construction is actually running ahead of schedule, but it can't be finished soon enough.
