We are happy to report that progress on the construction of the new El Gabilan Library is on schedule! 

This month we're able to focus on interior work as the furnishings and shelving gets installed. The library book and material collections have also been ordered, and we expect to see them start to arrive in January. While the outdoor landscaping work has been slowed because of recent rains, the next few weeks should allow crews to get back on schedule.  

Check out this time-lapsed video of the construction here!
