Gordon’s own Michelangelo¬†– Bonnie Dickson – is decorating the ceiling and top of the walls with her usual skill.¬† Meanwhile new carpet has been installed and the plumbers are making progress on the bathroom.

The library is expected to be open to the public sometime in January, according to Lily Petty. But first the books all need to be cataloged. The library is using a computer system called Biblionix to keep track of books. Volunteers will be needed to scan ISBN numbers into the system, tape the numbers to the spine of the books and then shelve them in the proper order.
