Now, on to the photos! Claremont Branch has undergone quite a transformation already.
Take a look at the progress:
This may look like a big pile of mess, but it is actually a very organized arrangement of recyclables. 95% of the construction waste will be recycled.
Here, the mulch made from trees and shrubbery will be saved and reused in the final landscaping of the branch.
Stacks of used carpet tiles and the plastic housing for the florescent lights wait for recycling pick up. The built-in wood cabinetry is being covered to protect it during demolition and construction.
These bricks, salvaged during demolition, will be used to create the new sign for the library.
Also to be recycled, wood scraps and defunct shelving, toilets (not pictured here), and nonfunctional metal shelving (not pictured here).
We'll keep the pictures coming! Soon we'll have photos of the transformation at North Branch....
