On August 13 Raimond Flynn, Nathaniel Williams, and I visited 351 Fairview Avenue in Hudson to view the progress on our new library space. Nathaniel and Raimond have been instrumental in securing our new location in the Berkshire-Taconic region.
We were pleased to see the many developments:
- all exterior walls, along with the meeting room and interior office have been framed, and most of the sheet-rocking completed
- the shared entryway with lavatories has been framed, and the sewer line installed
- the front windows and door have been cut out.
Here’s a view from just inside the space, by one of the new front windows. The emergency exit door you see will be filled in, and a new 6-foot doorway will be installed to the left of this existing door.
In the photo it looks positively leafy outside beyond the dumpster, but don’t be fooled. Beyond that one tree is an enormous asphalt parking lot whose future the property owners have not yet decided upon. Send us your ideas, and we’ll share them with our landlord.
Unlike at the carriage house in Harlemville and our temporary location in Philmont, parking will be ample as you can see; and we won’t have any hazardous hills to contend with in the winter—all the more reason to come visit when we re-open this fall!
Thank you again for your support.
