Progress Update

Well the application for the Department of Commerce and Regional Affairs Library Construction and Major Expansion matching grant is on the jet, Gold Streaking to Anchorage.  Now comes the waiting period.  We expect applicant libraries will be notified sometime in June or July 2012 if their application has been accepted.  Let's keep all our fingers crossed.

The Friends of the Juneau Public Libraries, Staff of the Juneau Public Libraries, MRV Architects and CBJ Engineering would like to thank everyone who attended this fall's events as we put the design phase in high gear to meet the November 8th deadline (2 months earlier than previous year's deadlines).  It was great to hear directly from members of the community, in-person, on the blog and on the hundreds of "post-it" comments on the architectural drawings on display.   Your suggestions have directly shaped the conceptual drawings that were submitted with the grant application and we look forward to further opportunities to gather together and make this library a beautiful and highly used cultural treasure in the heart of the Mendenhall Valley.

Here are some pictures of your "post-it" comments as well as some from the Design Review on 10/24.  Be sure to check out the latest drawings which include 3D elevations.
