What a trend!

Needed a shield from the rain
We have had some AWESOME volunteers!  Just our PIU summer crew have been working and we've finished 20 of the shelves and those were the deep and wide ones (yes, you can all start singing "Deep and Wide..."). Next we have the shallower paperback bookshelves to do and some of those need painting rather than staining.  But we have today and tomorrow with a group workday so phase 1 should be finished on time and under budget!  On to moving everything around and getting ready to paint!

We're going with the school colors in a nice, elegant version to provide a calm, meditative but fulfilling scene.  That might be a bit of a stretch in thinking but one of my goals is that people will want to come into the library for more than just the AC.

Flash back:  I am a tactile person so we measured everything (building and shelving) and I made my scale drawing with graph paper.  I like to move the little pieces around and can be quite creative without throwing out my back (or someone else's) moving furniture.  As the project became a reality, I did move everything over to a home design program my husband has so we can move things and take a virtual walk-through to make sure everything will work with minimal, I hope, on-site chaos.

Tomorrow will be fun, we are going to have a family work day to finish up the shelves.  It's B.Y.O.P... "Bring Your Own Picnic".  If you are in the area, stop by for a few minutes to work, chat, fellowship, or just to pray and be thankful for this awesome opportunity God has blessed us with.

'Til next time!

Kevin Graham and Leeman Sebastian (below) have been our afternoon relief

Just as we start to tire out, Leeman and Kevin (above) replenish our strength and keep us going!

Scott Refilong and Janny (below) split their time morning and afternoon

In the morning Janny and Scott (above) pretend they don't have class later and after math, they are ready with some extra energy!

Tyler Mesubed is the genius behind the rain shield.  Simple and functional work every time!

Everly Ngirarikel has been a tireless machine all week!
