Transformation in process

The Barney Branch Library is gaining momentum and steel for the new central structure today…..The original Building was donated by D. Newton Barney as a memorial to his mother Sarah Brandegee Barney. Designed by Stephen Brainerd Lawrence and commissioned in 1919, the South wing the was modified in 1959, and now in 2010, is in final phase of a total redesign to the South wing and center structures by Bruce Tuthill and Peter Wells of the architectural firm Tuthill and Wells of Avon. Building committee chair, David Palmer, and his committee are working hard with the architects and SCOPE ,our general contractor, to bring the project to a wonderful conclusion before Fall 2010. It is exciting to see this wonderful transformation in process. Please stop by and see history in the making.
