The season of the Davis Library.

The season of the Davis Library.

I can see it now...

You can begin to see how it will come together. The windows in additions have been cut. Notice, there will be a large picture window in the children's room, that looks off into the woods, just like the beloved one in the current adult room. When the addition is complete, the new entry way will be the green door facing the parking lot (pictured below).

Next step, the roof!

This week at the Davis Library....

The shelves have been emptied
for the walls to be taken down.
                                                          Here is a look at the temporary tiny children's room.

The siding has from the outer walls and the windows were removed.


The following day the framing began for the new rooms.


The next day the rooms were framed, leaving this great visual of what is to come!

Here is a look at week two, how the time flew!

These workers are as fast as can be. The electric meter is installed, the foundation is insulated and filled in. Framing of the addition begins next week.


 There will be some changes to the library's functionality this summer. Please, bear with the short term pain for the long term gain! Most of the books in the children's room will be going into storage this week. The walls in the children's room and the wall along the parking lot will be knocked out in the next week or two. 

  There is reserved shelving for the children's room for the time being.
Including titles in YA, Juvenile, Early Childhood, Poetry, Leveled Readers,
Board books, DVDs, NF-Art, World History and Eyewitnesses.
New titles will continue to be added.


A tremendous thank you for all of the help today! Lots of packing, schlepping, storing and organizing. It is much more fun with a group of folks. Stoddard is full of quite amazing people, who are willing to lend a hand for a good cause.

Ask and you shall receive!
We had no boxes and within one hour we had three different car fulls of boxes delivered. May seem like small potatoes to some, but in a rural town like Stoddard large stores are 30 minutes away!

Construction has begun! Here is an overview of week one...

The holes being dug for the foundations were completed already on day one!          

The footings have been set for the foundation of the children's room and YA room.

The foundation walls were set the next day!

The concrete is ready to be poured for the foundation.

Currently, parking at the library is a bit difficult at times. Please feel free to park in front of the library as well is in the parking lot of the house across the street, which our neighbor so generously offered for our library patrons.

Our drop box is unavailable at this time, please call if you need to renew your books (446-6251).
You can drop off books during our library hours
Mon.-Wed.- Fri. 3pm-7pm and Tues. & Sat. 10am-2pm

It is very exciting to see the progress of the library addition. Work is anticipated to continue through September. Come by and check it out. Please make note of the restricted areas for the safety of you and your children. 

We hope to see you soon!

January At the Davis Library

This winter at the library we will be having tea time every Saturday at 11am. Come visit and stay social during the snowy winter months. We may use the time to catch up, play games, make crafts and drink tea. Since we have no plumbing to wash it is BYOM (bring your own mug).

The library is now lending snowshoes! We have 2 pairs of snowshoes available and they are lent for one week at a time. Plan a trip on the many trails in beautiful Stoddard. Ask the library if you need to know of good places to go.

Monday Fun Day, afterschool story time at 3:30pm.
Get off the bus at the library, for afterschool story time this winter. There will be puppets marionettes, finger puppets, felt boards and maybe even some singing.

Happy New Year to you and yours!
