Slab Poured for New Expansion Section

Over the weekend about 27 trucks delivered a steady stream of concrete that was pumped over the site and onto the slab for the new expansion section of the Sharon Forks Library. Construction of the slab required about 240 cubic yards of concrete.

We know our patrons are looking forward to a little extra elbow room at storytimes and events, and so are we!
