We´ve had some exciting developments in the storage room renovation. In the past couple of weeks we´ve managed to clear almost everything out of the room (interesting things found included a collection of jeans and shoes, two books of slides, minutes of meetings from 20 years ago, and lots and lots of bugs!). We´ve scrubbed the walls and the ceiling and have bought all the paint, rollers and brushes. The walls will be a lovely sunny orange, and the ceiling, which we hope to start painting today, will be coated with a fresh layer of white paint. Photos of the decorated room will hopefully be up soon, but for now, here is a photo of our clean(ish) scrubbed and swept room. Keep looking for updates, and thanks once again to all the generous donators. We still need some more funds to buy floor tiles so please do keep giving!

The storage room project at the library is well underway, thanks to some generous donations. The hope is to repaint, tile and fit the room with tables and seating so that it becomes a much-needed meeting and studying room. Here are some before pictures so you can track our progress! There is lot of stuff to clear and sort out, and a lot of cleaning to be done, but we´re making the important first steps. We´ve also begun to renovate the furniture already in the room - Here is Sam and some of the children working on sanding down a bench to get it ready for repainting.
