By the time you read this, our brand new grand old library will have opened its doors to the public (though the Grand Opening still awaits us on February 2). So some of you — perhaps most of you — will have had the feelings I have as I write this.
Thanks to the kindness and generosity of our library director, Miguel Vicente, I’ve been privileged to participate in the moving-in process, so my sister got a “sneak preview” of the library interior. It was still a work-in-progress: shelves unfinished, painting going on, stacks of stuff sitting around on many surfaces. But never mind. She walked in and breathed a single word: “Wow.”
