? This continues the November 3. 2006 report of the rennovation of the Resident library, which is now located one the first floor of Unit 9 in the East Crescent complex.
After intensive cleaning by the construction crew, parts of the ceiling and some of the walls were painted white to lighten the room.


? The shelves were relocated and completely reorganized. Most of the books were already labeled by topics. Now the all of books are completely labeled.
Planning coordinator Dan Kelliher headed this renovation and re-sorting project. Volunteers from many departments helped with the work.
