Little Falls, Moving Forward, ... or Week in Review

Little Falls, moving forward. our week in review.

Just as we were picking up momentum with all the work scheduled to be done on the outside of the building during the past week, Tuesday's unexpected snowfall brought the exterior repairs to a brief halt. Temporary, yes! And the work is once again proceeding!

Crews have installed huge metal plates at the front of the building just outside the front entrance.
This is  part of the repair work to the replaced 4 inch water main pipe which enters the building at this point.

On the inside the building, the children’s area, which was flooded, has been cleared of all the boxes which we temporarily stored there, and it is now being carpeted. A peek at this activity gives us this image, an area which has bright “alive” colors which are attractive, and add vigor and vitality to the surroundings.

It is truly a children’s center, soon to be transformed into a “place of wonder.”

Work continues on the bathrooms, and the fixtures are all lined up awaiting the plumber and installation.

Toilets ready for installation

Upstairs, on our entry level from the parking lot, through the staff entrance, storage has been added to the staff workroom area, with staff furniture scheduled to arrive in the near future.  We are moving along.

As to program events from the Little Falls Library, even though we are closed, please remember that the Little Falls Literary Salon will meet at the Chevy Chase branch on Wednesday April 14, 2017, 11:00 am–12:30 pm to discuss the book, When the Moon is Low, by Nadia Hashimi. This will be the Literary Salon’s second adult book discussion for the 2017 spring series session, entitled Immigrants and Refugees. 

Copies may still be available for borrowing at the Chevy Chase branch.

Check back soon for more news about the refresh activity.
