Eye of the Archives: Almost There
Well, well, well, look who’s all dressed up with no place to go? Me! I am feeling pretty luxurious these days, and it’s not just because the Oscars were on Sunday night. I have been decked out with the most lovely accessories: fine carpeting, pretty dark blue walls and shiny bathroom tile. All the finishing touches are happening, and I must plug the contractors (G.F. Woods) because it’s all on time. But, like I said though, no place to go. While the construction is nearing an end, we have to wait for the building to settle a bit before we transport all of the archives back into it. Then the staff can move into their new offices and we’ll make sure everything is running smoothly before we invite the public in to see it all.
Our grand opening will be July 14, so mark your calendars. That’s when we’ll open up for a full day of tours, celebrations and snacks. In addition, that pretty blue wall will feature a photo exhibition featuring images selected by community members. It’s all very exciting, and I’ll be in preparation mode until I make my big debut to all of you. Thanks for hanging in there; it will be worth it.
