Director’s Report to the Board of Trustees for October

1. Roof Project – Update

A number of formalities remain, but work should begin shortly on replacing 7 of the 8 roofs on the library.  The eighth one covers the addition to the building.  Since it is much newer it is in good shape.  All of the others will be replaced over the next month weather conditions permitting.  No work can be done in the rain.

Concerns were raised over the legally required signs that indicated that asbestos will be removed as part of the overall roof removal process.  It is our understanding that there is no danger from the asbestos removal.  GEO Environmental has the specific contractual responsibility to examine the completed project for any asbestos issues.  The asbestos removal is being done by a subcontractor of Precision Roof Inc. The subcontractor specializes in asbestos removal. All of the workers are certified and licensed by the state.

At some point, there may be odors detected in the building. The odors will be the result of the new roof being glued down.

What's Cooking?: Apples, Apples, and More Apples

When October arrives, the excitement is not about Halloween, costumes, and candy.  October is apple season time and I can’t wait to go pick the best varieties to start my baking.  I wonder which types of apples will make a “perfect” combination for a great tasting pie this year.  There is so much to consider since the textures and flavors of apples vary from tart and crisp to sweet and soft.  Just looking at the honey crisp, ginger gold, gala, granny smith, and golden delicious start those creative juices in me to dive into making those baked goods we especially enjoy in the autumn and winter months.
