Bathrooms, Cabling, Clouds: Your Construction Update - Little Falls Refresh

At Little Falls, the bathroom floor area on the lower level, has been refilled with concrete. Large and small sized piping, a mixture of both PVC and copper material, is beginning to appear in those spaces. All this activity is done with the strict adherence to the design and drawing elements since the end result is the provision of new, functional bathrooms to be enjoyed by the community. We are getting there.
                      
The provision of more seating spaces and access to additional electrical power outlets also constitute the focus of this phase in the refresh process. Consequently, the electricians are diligently pulling their data and electrical cables through overhead and floor based conduits. There will be more to come on this in the near future, but suffice it to say that at the Little Falls Library our community will be connected, and definitely delighted.

As a quick aside, it was interesting to read in the Bethesda Magazine, that the County Libraries were giving assistance to commuters who were affected by the Metro track repair program by offering the services which we have as an alternative. Seating, internet connection, and accommodation are all part of MCPL's regular offering.

I mentioned "Clouds" in the title of the blog, and hasten to explain what these are in relation to our building refresh. Located at the new information and circulation stations, and hanging from the ceiling are two circular shapes, ... clouds, ... which, with embedded lighting, will illuminate the spaces below. As a design feature, with the mural mentioned in the last post as a backdrop on the wall, this area will be one of the outstanding points in the refresh.
                                             
And the work continues, with more to be reported as the construction shifts to another phase.

Don't forget that our core programs are being continued at off-site locations. The Literary Salon, the Adult Book Discussion Group will meet for its final book discussion program for this Fall at the Chevy Chase Library. If you are visiting the Chevy Chase Library as an alternative location until Little Falls is re-opened, it may be possible to pick up the book for the November book discussion which will take place on Wednesday, November 16, 2016, from 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM. The book to be discussed is Tsar of Love and Techno: Stories, by Anthony Marra.

Our Little Falls English Conversation Club continues to meet at the Fourth Presbyterian Church, 5500 River Road, Bethesda, MD, 20816. Sessions for the month of November will meet on November 4, and 18, 2016, from 10:15 a.m.- 12:00 noon. And, more to come.
